    Hello everyone,

    I just installed Thunderbird to use it as a newsreader. It works fine,
    expect for the fact that when accessing newsgroups with binaries, it
    only shows scramled text characters instead of the usual zip or rar
    files. What am I doing wrong ?

    thanks,

    Rodrigo

    You may not be doing anything wrong.

    Mozilla news readers are okay for text newsgroups. Use a program like
    Xnews [http://xnews.newsguy.com/] for binary newsgroups.
