I configured OE for newsgroups..what is the name of this newsgroup

Post by c2hlYW5 » Mon, 10 Mar 2008 01:04:00


I went to http://www.yqcomputer.com/
and followedd the instructions for setting up Win XP newsgroups. In the
Newsgroup Subscriptions dialog box, I typed "microsoft.public.windowsxp to
display all the Win XP newsgroups. When I downloaded them, there were a
gazillion different groups.

Can you tell me both the name of this newsgroup and also how to tell the
name of any newsgroup?

Thanks in advance,
sheana

This newsgroup is microsoft.public.word.docmanagement. To sort out the
gazillion newsgroups, in the Folders pane in OE, click on the folder for the
Microsoft news server (whatever you've called it). This will display all the
NGs you've subscribed to (if any). Click on the button for Newsgroups...,
which will open the Newsgroups Subscriptions dialog. In the "Display
newsgroups which contain" box, type ".word", and you'll get a list of all
the Word NGs. To eliminate the foreign-language ones, type "public.word". If
you scroll through the list, you'll get an idea of the hierarchy and figure
out appropriate search terms for locating NGs for other applications. Note
that some (such as Windows) are for specific versions; all the Word NGs,
however, are for all versions (except that there are specific ones for
Macword).
