Is there a newsreader that retrieves newest headers first?

Postby waveman56 » Sun Aug 16, 2009 10:41 am

Hello. I was wondering if there was a newsgroup reader that would retrieve headers in reverse order, ie newest headers first. I like newsbin but it retrieves the oldest headers first and some groups are huge. Plus I don't typically need to go back more than a few days to find what I want. Sorry if this question has been asked before (I'v been away from the scene for a while), or if it's a limitation of the newsgroup server.

Right click on the newsgroup in Newsbin Pro and click "download latest" rather than "download all headers". That should bring back only recent headers.

The nntp protocol doesn't have a command to list the headers in reverse order, the server always makes the output in the same order they came in, but you can, as mentioned, request the latest X number of headers instead of all of them.
