Downloading and Reading Newsgroup Messages

Before you can read the messages in a newsgroup, you have to download them from the server to your computer. That process is not as straightforward as it sounds. For starters, you can't tell from the newsgroup list how many messages are currently available for each newsgroup. Some obscure groups generate only a handful of messages, but popular groups can contain thousands of messages at one time, with some containing binary attachments or graphic files that occupy significant amounts of disk space. Downloading every message without first checking the newsgroup's contents is clearly a bad idea.
