Can't connect to newsgroups

By WeiTsu ·
Connections via Outlook, IE, etal all working OK. However, can't connect to newsgroups via Outlook Express. Any ideas re: networking/security setting(s) that might be creating this block? [using latest versions of all apps]

Outlook Express has to be configured for the proper newsgroups servers (most often from your ISP such as Verizon). In addition, some ISPs require you to logon (just like email servers) to be able to access the newsgroups.

So having said that...did you put in your ISP information first into Outlook Express...

Tools >> Accounts >> Newsgroups >> Add

More often than not, your logon credentials for your email/internet access will work for newsgroups you should be ok using them. Try this and then let us know.
