I think you have not selected correct news server.

To access newsgroup, you have to create a new account in Outlook Express.

STEP 1 : Select 'Account...' option in Tools menu. This will lead you to the 'Internet Accounts' dialog.

STEP 2 : Click on 'Add' and select 'News...' from the list. This will take you to the 'Internet Connection Wizard'. Type your name and email address when prompted.

STEP 3 : Now you have to type the news server name. This will be provided to you by your ISP. If you are behind corporate firewall, contact your network administrator for details about the news server.

This will add a new news account. You can fine tune your account by clicking Properties.

Now you are ready to access the newsgroup.

To subscribe to a newsgroup:
1. Select 'Newsgroups...' option from tools menu. This will connect to your news server to download a list of the available newsgroups(This is done only for the first time). If the news server name is not correct, you will get the error you are getting now.
2. Select the newsgroups you want to subscribe.

Thats all to it. All the best.
