is there another way of accessing newsgroups without using Outlook express. it doesnt let me setup an account as it requires an Internet news (NNTP) server your Internet service provider has given you but my provider hasnt given me one. thanks for any help.

What about Google Groups. You can access all the newsgroups through that.

I did register with Google Groups but its very unreliable it often comes up with errors messages such as page cannot be displayed.
