Newsgroup appear and disappear like a ghost!



I am using microsoft outlook 2003, I manage to subscribe newsgroup by
following the instruction in help:

<b>Start the newsgroup reader

The first time you use the newsreader, you must add the News command to the
Go menu.

Add the News command to the Go menu.

On the Standard toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and options that you
use to carry out commands. To display a toolbar, press ALT and then
SHIFT+F10.), click the Toolbar Options arrow .
Point to Add or Remove Buttons, and then click Customize.
Click the Commands tab.
In the Categories list, click Go.
In the Commands list, click News, and drag it, without releasing the mouse,
until it rests over the Go menu. When the menu displays a list of commands,
point to where you want the command to appear, and then release the mouse.
Click the Go menu, and then click News.

That all went perfect, until I close and open outlook, and search for "news"
command under "go" menu, it wasn't there, so I went back to follow the
instruction, but could not find the "news" command. And just a few seconds, I
clicked on "menu", the news command was there, so I click on it, but to my
surprise, it opened this directory for me:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\System\MSMAPI\1033

I am so confused.... and I closed the folder, and i tried to click again the
"news" command, and it was not there....

This is disaster......

You didn't look around did you?
This question and answer are posted here several times a day.
To get the News command back, go back to the Programs tab in Control Panel |
Internet Options and change the default newsreader to Outlook Express. If
OE prompts you to make it your default newsreader the next time you launch
it, clear the "Always perform this check..." box and then click the No

Realize of course that you are not subscribing to newsgroups in Outlook.
Outlook is not a news reader. You are using Outlook Express when you read
