I only stick with Thunderbird (reluctantly) because it's cross-platform.
Not only for me when I use Linux (of course) but also for my Mac, but
for Windows clients that ask for advice and when I work on their PCs. I
refuse to touch MS Outlook.
Thunderbird sucks badly for newsgroups.
Yes, sadly; I'm figuring this out. I'm still hoping for a way to use
filters/spam/kill-files with newsgroups on Thunderbird.
Use a real newsreader. I'd suggest Pan.
I love Pan, thanks. I used to use it exclusively when I first found
Linux. But not cross-platform.
Allow me to weigh in: Dan C is correct that Pan is great. However, if you need
an x-platform app and aren't doing p0rn xfers, then I offer slrn as an excellent
solution. Filtering is perfect with only a few key strokes needed, and once you
set up .slrnrc (bit of a pain but I can help - SINNER knows more than I), it's a
snap to use. I prefer to use Cream as the external editor 'cause it does spell
check easily and cut/paste is handy. Also, slrn has many add-ons - AKA macros. I
use leafnode to pull down news articles which passed the filters. However,
leafnode is *not* for MS Windows.
