your proposal is interesting. I have already tried my Thunderbird us
But I have still some problems causing I cann't reach I want.
For example, I am not able to load this thread. I subscribed to
windows.public. windowsxp.general. Tb is loading the threads. But from 11.03
only a few threads are visible. I habe a button "Get next X news messages",
but only the more and more old
messages are loaded. Unsubscribing und subscribing does not help.
Tb starts loading older and more older messages.
Furthermore, with the nntp I am not able to look all messages
for occurance of wished string. Only the loaded messages can I search trough.
A NNTP client is good. But web-based reader has several advantages missing
in the nntp client.
