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.
