    I have used Agent for many years. It suits me, and does the job very well I find. I also use Agent for email, as it refuses to run anything in email (or news) without a specific command to do so.

    A friend of mine who was also an Agent enthusiast now uses Newsleecher. He reports that it is brilliant for multipart postings; which I suspect you may not be interested in!

    Both of these are Windows only. Both have a free trial period. In addition, there is a version of Agent called Free Agent which may be all you need.

    <cough - splutter> Outlook is famously a bad newsreader. It is very poor at multipart posts, and has the usual M$ collection of problems with nasties buried in articles. Outlook also has the standard M$ error with the sigsep and seems to encourage top-posting, which in some groups makes you very unpopular.
