Practical Information

  • NNTP clients (like Mozilla Thunderbird and MS Outlook Express) keep track of the previously read/unread/new messages, cache the headers and only download content when necessary. So they should be preferred over Web frontend.
  • You can see instructions for setting up newsgroup accounts with Mozilla Thunderbird.
