    thunderbird as news reader: optus settings

    I really tried to avoid laying this one on you folks, but i can't find a thread dealing with.

    I'm new to ubuntu, running thunderbird as emailer and would like to run same as newsreader, but can't get settings right so that thunderbird will recognize my server: optusnet.com.au

    anyone in the know about this could help?

    thx heaps in advance,

    Same here. My bet is that the linux version of TBird doesn't have the newsreader option.

    If you ever find out anything for sure re the newsreader, I'd sure like to know.
