Easy.  Go to Tools, click on Accounts, click Add.  From there you enter your
ISP's news server (they will tell you what it is) and click Add.  Simply
click on Newsgroups and find RRC.  Click subscribe and begin reading!

Is the original talking about Outlook Express or regular Outlook?  I know
with Microsoft Outlook you can't view newgroups, but with Outlook Express
you can.

Steve?  What program are you using?

Oops!  I thought you meant OE.  You can download it from Microsoft's site
(www.microsoft.com) free of charge, but if you have IE5, you *should* have
OE5.

Is there a way to spawn a newsgroup window separate from the mail window?
(multiple instances of the prog, like I'net Mail & News, the prequel to OE)

Steve,

I don't think America Online allows you to use another client for email or
newsgroups.  I know this is something they are working on for future
versions of the America Online software.

My advice is to switch to another internet provider if you really want to
use Outlook, Outlook Express, Netscape, or another client for mail or
newsgroups.  For now I think you're stuck with AOL's  "crappy" newsreader.
:(

If you do decided to switch, Outlook Express is pretty good IMO.  As Bret mentioned, you can download the latest version of Outlook Express and Internet Explorer at http://www.micrsoft.com

Good luck with whatever you decide!

Er, with Outlook 97, 98 or 2000, OE is used automatically to read
newsgroups, provided you click on Tools, Accounts, then add the
server.....

year without using the OE program so to do....(actually all Outlook
does is open a shell version of OE to read the newsgroups, it does NOT
have its own newsreader...)

Unless you are using the corporate work group shared version (which
runs on an Exchange server), the answer is no.  Only one instance of
Outlook can run at a time....but you can run OE and Outlook at the
same time....I recommend doing this and do so myself!  <The corporate
version will allow more than one instance to run at the same time>
