is there any way to create a shortcut to start the outlook new reader from within outlook, much like in outlook express

i.e from the outlook shortcuts bar or outlook today instead of going thru the menu bar

express has it under 'outlook express'

as you might be able to tell, have just upgraded, would like to get it working like that then remove express from my system, is this possible?

any hints/help muchly appreciated

Outlook has no news reader - what you are using is in fact the Outlook Express news reader. Therefore you cannot remove OE.

Hi, yup, the other person is right, Outlook has no news reader support (nntp) and will likely never have it, as microsoft would rather have you run exchange server and have the newsgroups published in the Public Folder system.
