Agent does display binaries

I was mistaken recently when posting about not seeing binaries using Agent. Tech support straightened me out.

I've been using www.delorie.com/wood to view binaries and commented here about what I thought was an Agent deficiency. Deficiency was me and I wanted to rectify MY misunderstanding. Agent newsreader is several steps up from AOL that I was strapped with for too many years. My frustration of reading the text posts to the binary groups then logging off and "FIND"ing the pictures got to me. For Agent users click on MESSAGE and select SHOW RAW MESSAGE and toggle it to enable seeing the JPG file. Sorry to waste bandwaidth for this but wanted to clear up MY misunderstanding/frustration.

Agent doesn't show pics/binaries but can show the raw data. Use a viewer (I use ACDSee) for pics on groups like alt.binaries.pictures.woodworking /a.b.p.furniture. It also uses other externals programs for viewing, such as Acrobat (for .pdf files) and browsers (for websites) via your Windows (primarily) registration.

correct.
Agent has an internal viewer for text only. all other file types must be handled by other applications, and Agent has good tools to assign what gets sent where.
I use acdsee too. great little app...

I use Photoshop and Corel Photo Paint for editing But for plain old viewing, the viewer that comes with Win 2000 and XP works fine.

Agent version 2 is now available and $15 to upgrade. Version 2 Agent seem to be faster. Wish it could support multiple servers.
If you are using Agent, it's worth upgrading to Agent version 2.

My fifteen bucks will cover that upgrade. Anyway, my original $29 investment had give me about nine years of pleasure in the newsgroups.
