This works on MAVERICKS!!! It is a great Newsreader but it doesn't do pictures too well but it is FREE (as in beer) and it does ext very well.

This appl' installs and launches quickly, the interface looks fine.

The problem (for me) is that my I S P (Time Warner - Road Runner) does NOT provide the feed for Usenet newsgroups.

I really wish that I could access usenet. Any ideas ? Anyone ? Anyone ?

Google is your friend.... or pay for giganews...

A lot of the ISP's no longer have USENET newsreaders.If you have one you are lucky.RoadRunner has a free service which I don't use.For the most part because Usenet is no longer a popular feature I use Giganews which give me good service and their retention is good. But they cost $.

Individual.net is solid. Costs 10 Euro a year and is only text. IMNSHO well worth it.

When I try to open the file "Xnntp-Alpha-for-10.4.11+.pkg.zip" my system (intel/10.4.11) responds with: This package type requires Mac OS X 10.5.
