From the Help:

To subscribe to a newsgroup

The benefit of subscribing is that the newsgroup is included in your Folders list for easy access. You can subscribe to a newsgroup in any of the following ways:

When you add a news server, Outlook Express prompts you to subscribe to newsgroups on that server.
Click a news server name in your Folders list, and then click Newsgroups. Select the newsgroup that you want to subscribe to, and then click Subscribe. You can also unsubscribe here.
When you double-click a name in the Newsgroup list, a subscription is automatically generated.


When you view a newsgroup without subscribing to it, its name appears in your Folders list. Right-click the name and then click Subscribe. For more information about viewing a newsgroup without subscribing to it, click Related Topics below.
To view a newsgroup you subscribe to, click its name in the Folders list.
To cancel your subscription to a newsgroup, click Newsgroups, click the Subscribed tab, select the group you want, and then click Unsubscribe. You can also right-click the newsgroup in your Folders list and then click Unsubscribe.
