    My copy of Windows Mail came with Microsoft Communities already added...when
    i clicked on it, it retrieved a list of newsgroups...double clicking on them

    I literally didn't have to do anything except pick what groups i wanted and
    enter my .net info (they still calling it that?)...mail was already setup
    for this.
