Enter your name and click Next. Enter your e-mail address and click Next. Under "News (NNTP) server," type in

news.Microsoft.com

and click Next. Now, click Finish and then click Close.

Choose Tools|Newsgroups and Outlook Express will fetch a list of the available groups. Now, you can enter a keyword that you want to see information on (windowsxp for example) and then click a newsgroup that looks interesting. Click Go to read the messages.
