Suggestions for news reader software? [Solved]

Post by greendave8 » Mon Jan 28, 2013 12:54

Hi All,

I have been using Pan0.137 newsreader for some time now, but its becoming increasingly slower. I dont know why this is, everything else seems fine.

I am looking for other suggestions to use for reading news groups. Advice welcomed....

Cheers

Thunderbird works quite well.

Hm, I'm using Tickr, but it's somewhat buggy. So I'm testing newsbeuter and Claw's Mail, too …

Hm, maybe I should look for this old KDE 3 program, which was embedded in the taskbar and not ported to KDE 4 … I liked it …

By the way: news reader = aggregator for news groups/mailing lists or rss feeds?

All of them I think. Thunderbird certainly does all and, to my mind, is the only piece of news and mail software to compare with a programme called Turnpike which is the one thing I regretted losing when I moved to Linux.

you may try thunderbird, evolution or a suite of browser, mail client and newsgroup reader, as Mozilla SeaMonkey
