GNUS

(tool, networking)
GNU news.

A GNU Emacs subsystem for reading and sending Usenet news, written by Masanobu Umeda <umerin@mse.kyutech.ac.jp>. You can use GNUS to browse through news groups, look at summaries of articles in a specific group, and read articles of interest. You can respond to authors or write articles or replies to all the readers of a news group.

GNUS can be configured to use the NNTP protocol to get news from a remove server or it can read it from local news spool files.

Usenet newsgorup: news:gnu.emacs.gnus.
