    After subscribing to groups I get the following message when trying to
    connect.

    The Server could not be found.

    Configuration
    Account: msnews.microsoft.comrich
    Server: msnews.microsoft.comrich
    Protocol: NNTP
    Port:119

  2. The server is actually named msnews.microsoft.com.
    Why do you have 'rich' at the end?

    Why do you have "rich" on the end of the server name?
    It should be
    msnews.microsoft.com
