  1. Where do enter the name and password for the news server?
    It's not under Edit>Mail&Newsgroups Account Settings>Comcast News>Server

    If the server requires a username or password, then enter it when asked
    and either check the remember boxes or dont

    many users dont require a password for news server access if they are
    using their own ISP over dedicated phone lines. for example, if you are
    using Worldnet over dial up and dialing in on a Worldnet line, you wont
    be asked for a username/password. However if you are getting onliine
    via say DSL or Cable, you have to use a username/password for Worldnet
    server access.
