    It is in Windows Vista in Windows Mail (successor to Outlook Express). On
    the left pane, it is under "Microsoft Communities".

    As far as I know, Outlook is not a newsreader, unlike Outlook EXPRESS.

    Outlook does not have the capacity to be a newsreader.
    You need a newsreader like Windows Mail in Vista or Outlook Express in Windows XP.

    To set up the newsreader in Vista go to Microsoft Communities and in Outlook Express read the link below

  5. Outlook actually uses Windows Mail in Vista with a special /news command
    line as it does in XP with OE.
