I need something that will authenticate just like Outlook Express does, because I will connecting to an Exchange News Host. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should donwload for a Microsoft compatible news group client?

Regardless of the server, if it runs the NNTP service (the news server), you should be able to use just about any news reader.

My favorite is slrn.
My home machine dials out at 3:00 AM each morning to grab new posts in the newsgroups I read using slrnpull, and spools them to my local drive. I can then read and respond offline (so I don't tie up my phone line!), then update at will, or just wait until 3:00 for it to update on it's own.
It's very highly customizable and quick (uses the console - no need to wait for some X app to load).
