Chapter 25. Internet Newsgroups > Downloading Files from Newsgroups

Downloading Files from Newsgroups

Attached files show up in newsgroup message headers as attachments, just as they do in email messages. However, the paper-clip icon does not appear in the message header in the Attachments column until you've clicked the message header and downloaded the message.

You can usually tell if a message contains an attachment by its size—anything over a few kilobytes is almost certain to include an attachment. After you've previewed or opened the message, you can handle its attachments in the same way as you would in email (see Chapter 20).
