How to make OE only a newsreader

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by Dimetric Houston, May 22, 2004.

  1. Hello all.

    I have Outlook Express 6 and want to make it my newsreader. I don't want it
    to do e-mail. How do I do this?

    I know it was something with Start->Run, but I forgot what I was supposed to
    enter in the command box.

    Thanks.

    Just open OE, and click "tools" then "accounts" then "news", then "add", and
    enter your news account settings there. If you don't want it to do email,
    then don't put any email account settings in.
