Even with the new Outlook 2007 you can still not read newsgroups inside Outlook so you’re stuck with Outlook Express.

To configure Outlook Express as your default news handler open Outlook Express and choose Tools > Options > General tab and enable the Make Default button to make Outlook Express your default email handler.

You can now create a news account by choosing Tools > Accounts > News tab, click Add and then News. Enter the News further details that your ISP will provide you with and click Finish and then Close.

You can now determine which newsletters you want to subscribe to and how they will be handled in future.
