Personally, I don't normally use Microsoft's "Usenet client". I use the
best Usenet client in existence: Forte's Agent Newsreader (now in its 4th
iteration). It is truly a full-featured newsreader. Microsoft's
"newsreader" is just a quick-and-dirty substitute for a decent Usenet
client, and is mostly an email client.
