    I was wondering, in case anyone knows;

    how is outlook more powerful than outlook express? and why doesn't the
    more "powerful" outlook let me use newsgroups? or can it?

    to anyone who can answer these, thanks in advance.

    It has the whole Calendar / Tasks / Notes thing in it, which I actually
    use... You can fiddle with more settings. It can implement IMAP rules.
    It's more secure (ha). Microsoft says it is, and they never lie. All
    hail Microsoft.

    It uses Outlook Express Newsreader. I use Gravity.

    Outlook is "designed" (in the MS sense) for professional users, so it
    has calendar facilities and workgroup stuff that uses their server
    software so that you can let your PA check your emails and book
    appointments, and stuff. Such people don't use newsgroups!

    I went on an Outlook 2000 course last week, because it's pretty integral
    - with the task list, the calendar function, and the capacity to view
    other mailboxes - to how we work. I'm still thankful for OE on this
    computer, though, because while the professional users don't look at
    newsgroups, the PAs and their like do :>

    We had Outlook at work too. Don't know if you find the same, but it
    was a complete resource hog - everything else ran slower if it was
    there, even just lurking in the background. Made me wonder what /it/
    does with its time.

    Use Agent for newsgroups, much more intuitive than anything else
    I've tried.

    I've got outlook in work, it pisses me off cos no newsgroups. Dunno
    whether it's a resource hog though cos all the works computers are so
    slow I wouldn't notice.

    You've clearly never had to use Notes.

    Evil, evil software. Actually trying to Admin the thing without a degree
    in Notes is totally impossible.

    Classic example of doing something technologically for the sake of it;
    you then need to /write/ a note to remind yourself/others to look at
    the notes.

    Daft.
