  Creating new newsgroups accounts:

Newsgroups are discussion groups.  You connect to a server and download them like e-mail.  You can read and even respond to what you read by posting your opinion on the subject.  Newsgroups cover every subject imaginable.  No matter what your interests, you'll find a newsgroups discussion on the subject.

To create a newsgroups account, do the following:

On the Toolbar, click Mail and select New account from the drop-down menu.

 

The New account wizard launches.

Highlight News.

Click Next to continue.

 

Real name  =  enter your name here.
E-mail address  =  enter your e-mail address.

Note:  to help avoid getting spam, do NOT enter your true e-mail address.

Click Next to continue.

 

Incoming server  =  this is your news server.  Enter the name address of the news server:  news.ispname.com.
Outgoing server  =  this is your outgoing mail server:  mail.ispname.com.

Click Finish to complete the wizard.

Important:  you still need to enable NNTP authentication.  To do this, you'll need to edit the account.  Click here to learn how to edit an account.
