    ...and I don't mean for downloading binaries, I mean for reading old-fashioned newsgroups.

    I've tried loads, and none of them do all the things I want, which are mainly:

    1) When marking a cross-posted message as read in one group, it marks it read in all the other groups I subscribe to that were part of the cross post

    2) colour coding for quoted messages

    3) threaded view for messages

    Thanks

    Thanks, downloaded it and realised I'd tried it before - I can get the list of groups from my server and subscribe to my favourites, but when I click on any subscribed groups, it never downloads any messages, I just get the little timer circle going round and round at the top right, then it stops.

    No messages ever appear. I have it set to download the default (200) at a time

    Unison is probably the best available at the moment.

    I can't get Unison to mark cross-posted messages as read in all newsgroups.
