Checking the homepage, it doesn't look to handle NNTP. I could have easily missed something, but has this page been listed in a wrong category? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 09:45, 28 March 2008 (UTC)
The only reference to NNTP is in the Home Page, saying, 'It also supports NNTP'. But the home page describes Sylpheed as an "email client".
I have downloaded and installed Sylpheed 3.0.3, and it offers POP3 email, IMAP4 email, POP3 GMail, IMAP4 GMail. There is no way I could find of configuring a news server, and the SMTP/Email setup is mandatory.
Accordingly, I am removing the 'news' feature from the Wiki page. Whoever proves me wrong please contact me, I had great hopes of using Sylpheed as news client myself.
I use Sylpheed 3.0.3 to browse the Usenet and it works perfectly. To use NNTP you have to manually add an account via "Edit accounts" dialog and select the protocol from a drop down list. The account creation wizard doesn't list the protocol so it's a bit confusing. I'll be reverting the info about news capabilities for now. Ayayayaya~ Shameimaru! (talk) 16:34, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
