To Add an E-mail or Newsgroup Account
Note: Each user can create multiple e-mail or newsgroup accounts by repeating the procedure above for each account.
To Find Newsgroups of Interest
To find newsgroups of interest to you, you can search through a news server to find specific words in newsgroup names.
Note: If you cannot find a specific newsgroup in the list, your news server might not carry that newsgroup.
To Subscribe to a Newsgroup
The benefit of subscribing is that the newsgroup is included in your Folders list for easy access. You can subscribe to a newsgroup in any of the following ways:
To Cancel Your Subscription to a Newsgroup
To Read Newsgroup Messages
Go to a newsgroup and look through the message list for a message you want to read (you may need to scroll).
Note: To display or change the preview pane, on the View menu, click Layout, and then in the Preview pane area, select the options you want.
To Post a Message to a Newsgroup
To Send Your Message to Multiple Newsgroups on the Same News Server
You can send a given message to more than one newsgroup at a time only if all the newsgroups are on the same news server. To post a message to newsgroups on other news servers, create a separate message for each news server.
You can cancel a message you have posted by selecting the message, clicking the Message menu, and then selecting Cancel Message. Canceling a message does not remove it from a newsgroup user's computer if the user downloaded the message before it was canceled. You can cancel only messages you have posted; you cannot cancel another person's message.
To Block Messages from a Sender or Domain
You can block messages from a particular sender or domain. The domain is the name following the @ symbol in an e-mail address.
When you block a sender or domain, no e-mail or news message from that sender or domain will arrive in your Inbox or in the news messages you read. E-mail from blocked senders goes directly into your Delete folder. Newsgroup messages from blocked senders are not displayed.
Blocking a sender applies to standard POP e-mail only. It does not apply to HTTP e-mail or IMAP messages.
To remove a sender or domain from the Blocked Senders list, on the Tools menu, point to Message Rules, and then click Blocked Senders List. Select the sender or domain, and then click Remove
