On what platform?
Linux / Windows
P.A.N. (do NOT ask what the initials mean)
since you are a programmer, you could even grab the source code & recompile
Thunderbird (am using it at the moment)
AFAICT, PAN is actually the better of the two for newsgroups, but
didn't, last time I checked, deal with emails. Thunderbird handles both
but isn't the top of the pile for either. Close ... but no kewpie doll.
Kind of like us MS-Office instead of best-of-breed software. ;-)
I'm not not at the above address.
