Mac Mail doesn't do newsgroups like Outlook Express on a typical PC. However, you can download and install the free "Thunderbird" mail and news client. Just don't setup the mail side - only use it for newsgroups. Thunderbird is an excellent NNTP application. Download from here:

Thunderbird - Reclaim your inbox

If you need any help with setting it up for newsgroups, post back and someone will lend you a hand.

Regards.

Unison is an excellent newsreader, if you're doing anything more than casual browsing. In fact, I like it better than any other newsreader I've ever tried on any platform.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I've been STRUGGLING with getting a newsgroup working properly. I am a new to Mac's but more importantly I'm fairly novice at newgroups. I used a web version of newsgroups on my PC, but I was trained on following a couple of steps of searching, selecting files, creating an NZB, downloading the NZB, running a PAR2 and extracting the files. I barely knew what I was doing...

I should mention that I spent time reading the background to Newsgroups:
Slyck.com - Guide To The Newsgroups - QuickStart but that has not been of any help, I actually have become more confused.

So here's my problem, I can get the application (e.g. Unison) to connect to the newsgroup server but I have no idea how to search or which software I should be using for the search.

I have tried Unison and but couldn't figure out to search, I clicked newgroup folder names that sounded relevant and was able to download content in there but that was not the material I was looking for.

A good example is, I want to download an issue of Weeds Season 4. I have no idea where to begin.

Any assistance would be appreciated!

Sorry, my friend, but our forum rules prohibit the discussion of illegal activity, including pirating copyrighted material.
