Question of the Day – NNTP Integration with Outlook


I've seen some posts on different plug ins for Outlook that enable NNTP integration.  Does anyone have any opinions on which ones are best?


Thank - Josh

    Well, I think I’ll push mine 😉 With the integration with NewsGator, how could you go wrong. http://www.eworldui.net/nntpplugin.aspx

    I use outlook express as my default news reader .. no problems so far.

    I’ve used Matt’s, there’s also one at http://www.mapilab.com. They both seem to have the same deficiency, no message threading. You can fake it by grouping by conversation but it’s not good enough IMHO. I’m told that this is an Outlook problem, not an NNTP plugin problem, but I would think that there’s some bright coder who can figure it out.

    NewsLook is an outlook plugin that fully supports threaded views. Here’s the URL: http://www.ghytred.com/NewsLook/about.aspx check out the picture – threaded views! 🙂

    Whoops – too quick on the send. It is kind of slow… I also had it ‘lock-up’ my outlook until I did a cancel server request…

    I use Matt’s plug-in and it works fine for my needs. My only problem is that if I want to post to my blog or NNTP I have to change NewsGator settings. Unless someone knows how to have multiple post settings… or posting type per folder.

    Thanks for the feedback so far!

    I use NewsGator for RSS and then NewsLook for NNTP. I like how it lays out things for me a little better than Matt’s. I suspect that at some point I’ll go back to Matt’s though. I tried the MAPILabs one, but there’s a conflict with it and NewsGator, and I need my NewsGator. 🙂

    Sorry to butt in, (I’m the author of NewsLook) – it’s in beta right now and strangely enough, Performance is the next job. Look for an improvement next week….

    I use Matt’s plug-in too. Totally love it.

  12. Hello!

    Release of MAPILab NNTP v1.0 is out yesterday! Regarding the treading: with MAPILab NNTP the treading the same as in Outlook Express (even better — you can’t customize view of OE folders so good).

    Just look here: http://www.mapilab.com/outlook/nntp/newsgroups_outlook2003.png
