Best Usenet news reader

Outlook is just barely a news reader. You'll have more problems than it's worth. Go to http://pan.rebelbase.com/ and pick up a copy of Pan - it's developed for Linux, but there is a Windows build available in the download section. I've yet to find a better newsreader than Pan.

Windows version at:
http://pan.rebelbase.com/download/releases/0.14.2/WINDOWS/

Download both Pan and the GTK installers from that directory. Install GTK first, then install Pan. Browse with Pan and experience no garbage.
