Hour 15. Reading and Posting to Newsgroups > Composing and Replying to Messages

Composing and Replying to Messages

You compose and reply to messages in a newsreader exactly as you do in an email program. The only differences are in the message header, because instead of addressing a message to a person, you're addressing it to a newsgroup.

Note

The only other important difference between sending email and newsgroup messages is the terminology you see applied on buttons and menu items:

  • In email, you click Send to send a message; in a newsreader, it's either Send or Post.

  • In email, you click Reply to reply to a message; in a newsreader, it's either Reply or Respond.
