Agent is the standard newsreader, but Free Agent has some significant
drawbacks. Notably it doesn't have filters (or spell check, but that's
less of an issue.)
When you download the program you get a fully functional version of
Agent, but after 30 days it reverts to Free Agent.
OTOH if you like the way Agent/Free Agent does things, it's worth
springing for the $30 or so for the full version.

'can't you remember anything I've told you?' and lets

Hi! My name is Patrick and I use Outlook Express! <gasp!>
All I do is read and post. I like the fact that it does this very well. I
like the message retrieval and the ability to displace pictures. I don't
need and don't use any other features...
I guess the questions are 1) Are you dropping AOHell. 2)what
browser are you going to be using if you are.
If you're dropping AOH the new ISP may well have NNTP acess. This
allows you to use any reader and most browsers to access the NGs.
If you aren't, you'll need to get a newsfeed. Many have been
suggested as have a large number of readers.
