In large companies, you may have more than one discussion server set up in your organization. You can define more than one discussion server in Word 2000, Word 2002, or Word 2003, which means you can connect to more than one. This comes in very handy, particularly if you are working on a document development team and need access to documents in multiple departments.
To add a discussion server to Word, follow these steps:
Figure 1. The Discussion Options dialog box.
Figure 2. The Add or Edit Discussion Servers dialog box.
You should note that if you are already connected to a discussion server, you can simply click on the Discussions tool on the Discussions toolbar, and then choose Discussion Options from the resulting menu. You should do this in place of the first two steps in the foregoing; the rest of the steps are as noted.
