    Ok, I've found a newsgroup that i want to download the files from and I've already located those files. Once I get the NZB file what do I do with it?
    I'm using a mac and the newsreader I'm using is 'MT NewsWatcher'. On the setup it asked me for a News Server and Mail (SMTP) Server' what do I type there?
    I'd appreciate the help,
    Thanks

    EDIT: forgot to say that im using a mac if that makes any difference

    You need a server such as your ISP (if they offer one), giganews, newsdemon, etc.

    You can't download otherwise.

    There aren't really any free ones out there.
    And those mail servers aren't the same thing.

    Well, if I got the news server, what would i type for the mail server?
    Sorry, I looked through the forum and didn't find an answer.

    EDIT: nevermind, 2 more weeks of this semester then ill subscribe to giganews. thanks for the help.
