    Greetings --

    Well, there are no automotive news groups on Microsoft's servers.
    You need to configure Outlook Express to connect to the news server
    that you want to access. Your ISP' tech support will be able to give
    you specific instructions and the correct address of their news
    server.

    You are on the Microsoft server, which only carries MS related
    groups. To access the other groups. You need to be on a server that
    carries them. Such as, your ISP's. Check your ISP's web site, or call
    them from the servers NNTP address.
