Question on Newsgroups

Can I set up OE to check for new messages on my Newsgroups like I can my e-mail. My e-mail is set up for checking for new mail every 5 mins and plays a sound. Can the same be done with newsgroups? Thanks.

Can anyone answer this?

Have the evening crew got any ideas?

Do a Google for "newsgroup readers". These scan newsgroups and download new posts etc. There may be some with timers on them.

I would ask, though, if you expect newsgroups to be significantly updated with a frequency sufficient to justify a once or twice daily check? If they did, is it that important to obtain that information quicker than that?

From the Tools menu, select Accounts.


From the pop up that shows, click on the Add button, and select News. Follow the wizard to create a news accounts. You can then select the newsgroups that you want to add.
