Susan I access it through Verizon........they have their own newsgroup
address........so does RR.  You just get a "newsgroup" setup - i.e.
Microsoft Outlook and just like setting up email - you set up the newsgroup
with it's own connection - like news.rr.com (example).

news-server.tampabay.rr.com is the address to the newsgroup server for
roadrunner in Tampa.  Just replace the tampbay with your area's name, it
will be part of your email address

Susan - have the RR representative set up your news group account ----
before he leaves - and subscribe you to RCS --- When I recently moved
--- they had to come to the house and setup the cable connections for
the digital service - he was prepared to "set everything up" but it
wasn't necessary as I was only transferring the service.... he thought
I was a new user so I know he will do it if you ask!!!! Actually he
should do it without asking -- but a lot of folks do not use the
newsgroups - so DO ask!  You will love RR - I will never go back to
dial up or to DSL --- !!!

Susan,

It's pretty easy if you use Outlook Express.  Click on Tools then
Newsgroups.  When the NG window pops up, you can type in
rec.crafts.scrapbooks and then hit Subscribe.  If you want to look and see
what other NG you might like, all you have to do is type in a word (ex.
craft) and it will show you all the groups with 'craft' in the name,
including 'crafts'.  If you type in 'crafts', then you won't see groups with
'craft' in the name.  It's very easy and I love having RR.  Chris and I have
talked about selling our house in the next couple years and building/buying
a new one.  He says he has to have cable access - we don't like
dish/satellite - and I have to have RR.  Can't stand the thought of dialup
and we don't have DSL in our area.

Let us know if you need help:)

I have rr and access it through OE or Outlook by just subscribing to the
newsgroup.  In OE go to Tools, Newsgroups, and type in s***and we will
show up.
