Is there a way to create some type of batch file or something that when ran,
will add multiple groups to a news server in Outlook? Say I have 30
Microsoft news groups I want to add on a new machine.

Thanks,
Brett

If the groups are all on the same server, then click on the news server
name in the Folders list, click on Newsgroups on the right and then
highlight the first one you want, hold the ctl key and choose the
others, then click subscribe. If the groups are in a block, then hold
down the shift key on the first and last one. Then subscribe.

I could do that but it is all manual. Is there a way to add all the groups
I want to some prog, run it, and have them all appear in OE?

Thanks,
