Since The University of Phoenix‘s on-line classrooms use NNTP I’ve been looking for a good newsreader for the Mac so that I can get away from Windows as much as possible. Well, I think I’ve found it. Panic has a program called Unison which seems to have most of the features I’ve been looking for at a great price. It does threading, understands the write only Assignments group, and seems to handle attachments almost right. The only things it’s missing are the ability to handle HTML in posts (coming from what they said) and the ability to attach a file to a reply. I’m still not sure if I’m going to stick with it or go back to Thunderbird, which does just about everything except handle the Assignments group. But it’s nice to have options.
