Features - Posting Messages
You can use News Rover to post messages to Usenet newsgroups and to send
private e-mail messages. You can post new, original messages, you can
reply to messages that News Rover collects from newsgroups, and you
can forward messages to newsgroups or to friends using e-mail.
When you compose a message with News Rover, you can choose the set of
newsgroups that you want to post it to. You can send the same message to
as many newsgroups as you wish. You also can specify recipients to
receive the message via e-mail. News Rover takes care of the details of
using either the NNTP protocol to post to newsgroups or the SMTP protocol
to send e-mail messages.
To make it easy to remember e-mail addresses, News Rover includes an
address book. You can create as many entries as you want and then use
these address book entries when sending e-mail messages.
If you frequently post to the same group of newsgroups, you can define an
Interest Group to describe the set of newsgroups. Then when you post a
new message you can simply select the interest group and the message will
be sent to all associated newsgroups.
You can attach binary files to your messages. You select whether News
Rover should use UU encoding or MIME base64 for the file encoding. If a
very large file is posted to newsgroups, News Rover will automatically
split the file into multiple messages to keep the size of an individual
message below a limit you can specify.
In addition to posting new messages, you can also use News Rover to
reply to messages that it collects. Simply select a message
and click a button; News Rover will present you with a split screen
where you can compose your reply in the upper window and read, cut and
paste from the orginal message in the lower window. You can send replies
to the newsgroup, or you can send private replies using e-mail.
If you find a message that you think might be of interest to a friend or
another newsgroup, you can forward the message. Files attached to the
message are also forwarded. You can even view pictures in the picture
gallery and forward one via e-mail or post it to another newsgroup.
