How do I refresh my screen when in a Newgroup.

I am using MS Outlook 2000. To get to my reader I click on View, Go To, News. This takes me to my Newgroup.
When I am in the Newgroup itself that I read, I cannot figure out how to REFRESH or update the view so that I can see new messages.
What I wind up doing if exiting and re-entering and then new postings show up.

  I'd appreciate finding out how to refresh the view while in the reader.

Thanks

tools -> get new headers (how many to get at one time is in tools -> options -> read)

or you can set synchronization settings to fetch new headers in multiple groups at once using the synchronize command.

you're actually just using outlook express when reading newsgroups in outlook.. :)

 Thanks for your reply. I went to tools and did not see the option to get new headers. I then noticed that it says "Mozilla Thunderbird New Reader".
I use their browser. I'm not sure how Outlook opens the T-Bird Newreader.  (It looks a lot like Outlook Express New Reader.)
  So, what do you suggest?
  Sorry for this confusion........
  I guess I could use this if I can figure out how/where to refresh it.
  Appreciate your help.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

i think outlook just loads up your default newsgroup reader. that'd be how it loads up thunderbird instead of outlook express.

 I Found the answer myself. I merely click on 'Get Mail' within the Newreader and it updates.
I did not  think of trying thios since it is not truly 'mail'.
