Outlook Express - Directory Services

  Border View 22:24 13 Mar 2008

Am using XP Home SP2. In Outlook Express if you go into Tools then accounts there are four tabs - All: Mail; News; and Directory Service. I only use the Mail tab but wondered what the Directory Service Tab and News Tabs were for.

Sorry if this is an abvious question but I just dont know what they are for.

Directory Service Tab is used to set up a large address book (for example everyone at a university) which is accessable from each pc on the network - and the "news" is a newsgroup reader

No doubt if I'm wrong someone will let us know
