Configuring NewsXpress

This page will give you the essentials in settings up your NewsXpress software to work with Access Internet news service.


  1. Launch NewsXpress

  2. Click File and select Options...

  3. From the Options window under the Servers and Directory tab:

    • In the News (NNTP) Server: field enter

    • In the Mail (SMTP) Server: field enter

    • Leave the rest of the fields as they were by default.

  4. From the Options window select the Personal Information tab.

    • In the Full name: field enter your name as you would like it to appear on all outgoing messages.

    • In the E-mail address: field enter your return email address as you would like it to appear on all outgoing messages.

    • You can leave the Organization: field blank if you wish.

    Click OK

  5. NOTE: At this point, you should connect to the internet if you are not already connected.

    Click the File menu and select Connect

    At this point, your NewsXpress software is downloading a huge list of all the news groups available to you. This process will take a long time. You can watch the status bar at the bottom which would indicate how many news groups it has downloaded.

    This is only a one time thing.

    Once your download is done, you'll be ready to use your NewsXpress software!

That's it!
