Alas, 'tis the same for me. I use T-bird, but regardless of what reader I use the news server is provided to me through my ISP, and a log on is required to access it. They don't want to give the news server for free, it is only for subscribers.

Interesting. In the UK, if you are accessing the internet through a particular ISP, which always involves log-in credentials, the ISP assumes you ARE a subscriber, and thus does not require a separate log-in for the news server....way to go USA!
