New Reader Outlook Ex

P: n/a
I got my news reader (Outlook) set up and can download the messages, but when I try to post or respond to a message I get this error.

Your message was not delivered because the destination computer was
not found. Carefully check that it was spelled correctly and try
sending it again if there were any mistakes.

It is also possible that a network problem caused this situation,
so if you are sure the address is correct you might want to try to
send it again. If the problem continues, contact your friendly
system administrator.

Try setting the host to news.micrsoft.com. That is what I have been using in my OE.
