    Hi people, does anyone use Outlook to read newsgroups? I cant seem to be able to set them up in Outlook 2003? Thought it was time to ask. Thank you.

    Hi Cyberdance,

    Long time no see!

    I don't think Outlook 2003 does newsgroups. Launching the newsreader should actually start Outlook Express, so you might as well start it directly. There are some articles about this on http://office.microsoft.com, but that seems to be down at the moment.

    <img src=/S/hello.gif border=0 alt=hello width=25 height=29> Hi there Hans, hope you are well, good to see you. Gosh I am a clod, <img src=/S/newbrain.gif border=0 alt=newbrain width=21 height=22> I have been trying to get Outlook to activate its newsgroups, and could not figure out why it kept on launching OE! Someone give me a coffee, lol. Thanks so much for the swift reply, otherwise I would have no doubt continued to stuff up. As soon as I read your reply it hit me, of course there are no groups in Outlook!!! I must have been away too long.........thanks a million. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Hi! I read this post with interest as my company has some internal newsgroups and is contemplating going to Outlook 2003. I did some digging and found some links that may help out:
    On Outlook and newsgroups -- apparently you need to configure Outlook Express to run in a news-only mode:
