The other thing I found is this tutorial:

It mentions I need to use a program like Hamster to act as a the NNTP
newsfeed server from my server to the ISP if the newsfeed account
doesn't support commands which they generally don't when you buy service
for your desktop pc. I have not been able to find Hamster on the net...

Now I could be totally wrong if Microsoft has made it available for you
to hook your Exchange 2003 server since SP2 to any newsfeed provider!?

So there's already an NNTP server to which you have access and have
configured a newsreader on your PC.

Exchange can download newsgroup articles just like a newsreader.  3rd
s/w not neeeded.

Match #3:

Don't waste your time searching the forum.  Go directly to Google.

I have searched my thousands of saved messages from this thread for a
thread on setting up your normal news feed on your exchange 2003 server,
I recalled it required a 3rd part application which exchange talked to..

Does anyone know what I am talking about? I am not looking to sign up
with a company that charges me big bucks for news group feeds as I
already pay for my feeds for my personal PC use. I just would like to
know how to interface the PC used feeds with my Exchange 2003.
