Along with Firefox, the Thunderbird mail and news client is a direct descendant of the Mozilla suite. Designed to be lightweight and with a clean interface, Thunderbird does many of the things that the Mozilla news client can do but is a separate application from Firefox.
To add a new account to Thunderbird, click Tools, Account Settings, and select Add Account. Select the news account and follow the prompts giving Thunderbird all the information it needs.
When you have finished providing Thunderbird with all the relevant information, click OK, and you arrive at Thunderbird's default view. Along the left pane you will see the new news server account. Click it and then select Manage Newsgroup Subscriptions.
