    How can I access the Outlook news reader?

    More specifically, how can I access the news reader WITHOUT opening Outlook and going through the View menu?

    It seems to me that Outlook and Outlook Express use the same newsreader program, so it shouldn't be a big deal to create a shortcut directly to that EXE file. Unfortunately, I haven't a clue as to its name or even where it's located.

    Not sure of the .exe file name, but if you are already running I.E. Go to Tools/Mail and News/Read News. This way you don't need to have OL running first. It will, however, start OL Express automatically.

    Hello,

    I was under the impression that Oulook is your mail/communication center and Outlook Express is the Newsreader. I don't think you can use Outlook as a news reader.

    open the shortcut on quicklaunch or create a new shortcut to OE and add either /outnews or /newsonly to the command line. this opens express with only news support.

    both switches do the same thing, only the title bar is different.
