News Services

The news service is a complete solution for using the huge wealth of knowledge that is the USENET. Mailtraq can download messages from specified networks, and then provide these to local users. Mailtraq can support practically any news client (supporting standard NNTP and all the common extensions).

Mailtraq can collect news from your service provider at high speeds by using multiple simultaneous connections, making latency delays a thing of the past. This ensures that your available bandwidth is used as efficiently as possible.

Mailtraq can also download news groups from multiple news servers.

News Gateways

Not everyone wishes (or is able) to use a news client to read news, so Mailtraq can deliver news articles to users via mail if they wish (filtering out unwanted articles). In addition, users can post news articles via email instead of using a news client. This could be the ideal way to keep an eye on news groups for relevant articles.

The news gateway can also be used to convert a mailing list into a local news group. If you are a member of a discussion mailing list, then you will know how similar it appears to a news group -- so why not make it one! Articles will appear in a news group, and when you reply to them the message will be sent back to the mailing list.

There is detailed infromation in the context [Help] button from within the Console dialog 

Configuration tip:

You can configure which news groups any account has access to in the News tab of their user properties. For unauthenticated users, go to Options | Users... and click on Guests.

You need to enable authentication in the NNTP service properties first.
