Thunderbird 102.5.1 (64-bit) released.

But Emacs is for real men . . .

Then try the latest version of Thunderbird. I'm not convinced it
TB. Might be it's interaction with Windows. There's mention of
tweaks to NNTP in every release, do I can't imagine they
jettisoned Usenet. Maybe they did . . .

I use Emacs to gety rid of the UTF-8. After a few days, it becomes
intuitive to use.

I still think it might be giganews.

I'd say try Eternal September, but it seems iffy lately too. It's
free, but most are pay. This one I'm using now is pay, but it's been
around for a long time and seems rock solid. I think it's used by
kiddies to swap music and videos, because it supports binaries.
