Hello...I was trying to set up newreader. I followed the instructions to add
news to the go menu. I was trying to set up reader when i realized i didn't
know the provider news whatever....so it closed on me. When i went to set it
up again, news is now gone from everything. It's not in my toolbar anywhere.
Can anyone help me?

I use Outlook for email and OE for news. I don't know why OL makes it so
difficult to get to the newsreader but they do. Because of this, I create a
shortcut to OE and add the /outnews switch. This allows OE to be used for
newsgroups only and doesn't mess with your Outlook installation. The
shortcut can be placed anywhere that's handy but placing it in my Quick
Launch toolbar gives me one click access to this newsreader.

Here's what the "Target" line in my OE shortcut looks like:
"C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /outnews

Did you try reconfiguring OL for News again?

ARE YOU MISSING GO, NEWS?

A common complaint in every forum is the missing Go, News command in Outlook
2003. By default, the News command was removed from the Go menu and you need
to customize the toolbar to add it back. It's a simple job and the
instructions are included in Outlook's Help file, however, after adding it
to their Go menu, many users discover the News command is missing once they
close and reopen Outlook. It's not in the Commands dialog and resetting the
toolbar or deleting outcmd.dat doesn't help.

Through trial and error, we learned this happens after setting Outlook
Express as the default newsreader, either by answering Yes to the command
prompt that asks if you want to make Outlook Express your default or by
changing the newsreader setting in the Internet Options, Programs tab.

To get the News command back, open Control Panel, Internet Options and
select the Programs tab, then change the default newsreader to Outlook
Express. If OE prompts you to make it your default newsreader the next time
you launch it, click the "Don't ask me again" box and then click the No
button.

You don't have to use the Go, News command to open Outlook Express in
news-only mode. You can create a shortcut to Outlook Express and add the
/outnews switch to the command line, like this:

"C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" /outnews

After you create a shortcut on your desktop, you can add it to the Quick
Launch toolbar, drag it to the Outlook Bar or Shortcut pane (Outlook 2003).

It's already been shown in the newsgroups that your credibility is lacking,
and your character issues are major.
