    In OE, open the Newsgroups list window, to see the column
    that contains the description, you can enlarge the list window
    by dragging the tiny triangle symbol in the lower right corner,
    or slide the 'description' column separator to the left.

    If you have no description showing at all, put a check mark
    in the box says 'Also search description' then click the 'Reset List'
    button, it will download the groups list and the description.

    There are no description for any of the alt.newsgroups,
    not on my news servers anyway. But there are some descriptions
    for the comp, misc, news, rec, soc, and sci newsgroups.
