This NewsGroup vs. Microsoft public Fox newsgroup

Post by Mike » Thu, 03 Jul 2008 04:19:04


Hello - it seems that my ISP (Verizon) no longer subscribes to microsoft
newsgroups for posting and I'm not sure if there are any free public
services out there that I can use with Outlook Express or some other
comparable reader for access to these groups. Otherwise I and many others
may be limited as to what newsgroups we can post to. comp. newsgroups are
still available to us but not microsoft. newsgroups.

Any thoughts or ideas?

Thanks,
Mike

You should be able to set up msnews.microsoft.com as a news sever in
outlook.

How exactly would I set this up? I'm not sure what the name of the
newsgroup would be such as news.verizon.net etc. Can I just use a group
name without a username and password and if so what would I use in the
Outlook Express newsreader?

Thanks,

Mike

As the man said, set up a new news server msnews.microsoft.com. I just
did it. Then get the names of the newsgroups by following the
OE setup menu, and subscribe to whatever you want.

If you are unable to figure this out, get some help on how to use
Outlook Express.

If that isn't enough, fond a windows support newsgroup.

Got it - I could not have figured that one out with all your help.

Thanks a million,
