Newsreader (NNTP, not RSS/ATOM) suggestions?

Friday, October 14, 2005 5:37 AM

I’m currently using Outlook Express as my newsgroup (NNTP) reader of choice, but I’m not at all sold on it… it’s just the one I’m most familiar with and geek gravitating towards.  However, there are a TON of things that drive me crazy about it.  I thought about holding off until Windows Mail, the OE refresh in Vista, but after watching a Channel9 video, I see that the NNTP experience isn’t changing all that much.

What newsreader do you use?  I’m looking for a client install, not an online reader (IMHO, Google Groups is the best for searching old posts and online reading), and one that doesn’t snap into Outlook (seperate client please).  Ideally I’d like to find one that has sync capabilities between two PCs like so many of the news aggregators for RSS/ATOM feeds are adopting.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.  I’ll followup this post with a list of all the ones suggested for others who are interested.
