Re: Configure Outlook Express for MSN -- what settings for News &c.?

Discussion in 'Windows MSN Messenger' started by Jonathan Kay [MVP], Nov 2, 2006.

  1. Greetings Eugene,

    MSN shut down its public usenet server (for accessing all of usenet, obviously these groups
    are still up) about 6 years ago. There aren't any settings to put in.

    msnews.microsoft.com will get you the Microsoft ones though.
