    Hello,

    I was using mail a while back and there was a few things that i didn't like about it so i switch to thunderbird. I realized that i really don't like thunderbird that much either. Before i would switch back to mac mail i wanna know if anybody can answer my questions, here they are:

    1. When i was using mail it wouldn't downloaded the mail off the server it would just make a copy in mail. So i had to go into the webmail and delete it. Is there anyway to make mail download the mail.

    2. Is there a way to get news groups in mail. If not doesn't anybody know if there is a good program for news groups...

    thanks
    Cheers,
    Scott

    I believe there is an advanced option in POP setup to delete the mail from the server upon download.

    Mail will do RSS feeds, but it wont do newsgroups. I know there are newsgroup reader apps out there but I don't know anything about them.
