Hi all - I just started using SLRN and think it is a really cool program. The only other
newsreaders I have used were GUI based. (knode, thunderbird, pan)
I have a question about how slrn works. I have a free shell account that I ssh into
and use slrn. I don't have root priveledges, and cannot run/install new apps/scripts.
My question: The GUI based newsreaders always displayed all messages, whether they
were read/unread. How can I get slrn to always display all messages? Right now
it seems to only display new messages, and it is hard to keep up with threads.
Does slrn cache the messages somewhere, or must it download them every time?
(I checked and leafnode is not installed on the shell machine, so I pretty
much can only use slrn.)
Thanks for any help for a newbie..
