Can I set up OE to check for new messages on my Newsgroups like I can my e-mail. My e-mail is set up for checking for new mail every 5 mins and plays a sound. Can the same be done with newsgroups? Thanks.
Do a Google for "newsgroup readers". These scan newsgroups and download new posts etc. There may be some with timers on them.
I would ask, though, if you expect newsgroups to be significantly updated with a frequency sufficient to justify a once or twice daily check? If they did, is it that important to obtain that information quicker than that?
