Outlook Express - Adding Newsgroups

A newsgroup is a community of people engaged in an ongoing conversation about a particular topic or a particular range of topics. Sometimes the participants are conversing in real time, but often hours or even days might pass between replies in a conversation.

Note: As of November 15, 2012, Charter will no longer offer our Newsgroups service.
