Omea Reader: The Right Tool for the Job?

Manage Newsgroups

Another type of input Omea can read is newsgroup or usenet articles. Usenet is just about as old as the Internet but is still used by many to share information and ideas. There are thousands of newsgroups dedicated to just about anything you can think of.

I use them to collaborate with colleagues about software development. In order to use newsgroups you must be able to connect to a usenet server. More than likely, your Internet provider has one, but the article retention will likely not be very good. This makes using a free service not worth it. If you intend to use newsgroups, I recommend looking into a pay service.

To add a new server, click the News tab at the top and then right-click in the Newgroups pane. Select Manage Newsgroups to continue.
