Newsgroups - Can't Connect

I am using Windows XP, am using Outlook Express and have two ISP accounts. When trying to connect I get the following message;

ccount: news.btinternet.com
Server: news.btinternet.com
Protocol: NNTP
Port: 563
Secure(SSL): 1
Code: 800ccc0e

A similar message comes up (news.tesco.net, ) when I try to download and access newsgroups through Tesco.net which I signed upto as a second ISP last week. Outlook Express shows I am connected but I get timed out without any newsgroups being downloaded). I don't have any virus infections and have even removed Zone Alarm in the hope that this might fix the problem.

I have phoned the Tesco (premium rate) helpline but they had little to offer in the way of advice. Is there anythng I can change in my PC settings that might be able to sort this one?
Any suggestions appreciated.
Thanks

Billy
