Apart from the extreme slowness, what kills this app is that it can't download article headers only, it will always download all the full articles - which is just not acceptable in an offline newsreader.

Terribly slow connection!

MaxNews (X 1.1) are currently downloading last 500 messages from the server and the estimated download time are 2 hours!!! (Current rate 0 KB/s)

(btw: I'm on a 1Mbps+ DSL connection)

Removing it now...

I have been using MaxNews 1.03 for about a year with great satisfaction. Had a small problem with inability to get rid of seemingy "locked" old items and upgraded to 1.1.1 - which does NOT work at all with my news server. The developer has provided an upgrade to 1.1.2 which still does not work. I tried to go back to the old version - but it does not allow that. It was a very good news reader in my opinion - but while the upgrade looks good on the surface, if it doesn't work ..... Soon ????

Not worth it. It took a LONG time to download the full group list from the server. Then it took a long time to download 200 articles in a newsgroup. Then there was no way to configure the font in the preview panel. And, the killer, no clickable links. Forget it.

Doesn't work. Tells me my news server address at Giganews is an "Invalid Address", which I know it isn't. I've set up plenty of newsreaders with many different accounts over the years, so I'm no newbie. Looks promising, but if I can't get past step 1, it's of no use to me. I'll stick with Thoth and Unison until they can fix this.
