Re: how to archive news

     I'm using MHonArc for the same thing.  I'm on an NT platform and I use
Free Agent from Forte, a freeware newsreader that allows you to save an
entire newsgroup for off-line reading as a UNIX message file.  It seems to
work pretty well with MHonArc.

I have just installed MHonarc on my system because I would like to archive a
few news groups ( comp.unix.solaris, comp.mail.sendmail,
comp.dcom.lans.ethernet, and a few others ).  From what I can tell, MHonarc
needs these news messages in a file or group of files.  The only news access
I have is via NNTP.  Do I need to get another program to transfer these
files to my local system? (If so, which program). Or will MHonarc read these
groups straight from NNTP?
