Outlook never supported newsgroups. Windows Mail is the replacement for
Outlook Express. Maybe a mistake on Microsoft's part, but you are noticing
it several years later than everyone else. You can use Windows Mail in
Vista to manage your Gmail mail; you do not have to use Outlook. In
addition if your PC came with Outlook and other Office programs installed,
chances are good that it is cripple ware that will turn into a pumpkin soon
unless you pay for the privilege of continuing to use it.
