First off, DO NOT USE OUTLOOK to download from newsgroups, this is by far your worst option. Here's what I would do.

1. Find out your news server address from your ISP

2. Download a descent newsreader (Agent and Xnews are nice)

3. Download WinRAR

4. Download SmartPAR (in case the movie your downloading has incomplete parts)

5. Head to a group that has movies in it. The rules don't permit me to list the group name but it's not rocket science, just look for groups with movies in the name.

6. Download all the parts (.rar, .r01, .r02, etc), and combine with winrar.

7. Only download the Par files (.par, .p01, .p02, etc) if you have incomplete or corrupted parts. Use the smart par program to restore any bad pieces.

8. Enjoy
