Thunderbird and Newsgroups

Post by ChrisGreaves »

I am using Thunderbird 68.10.0 (32bit) and am happily reading and replying from/to my Gmail account and receiving Daily Digests from Eileen's Lounge.
I thought to essay with the old newsgroups (as in alt.travel....) but have had no success to date.
I used newsgroups with 1stReader back in the late 90s.
I am not sure if newsgroups are still active, although I gather that a few remain and have sporadic postings.

Question1: Within the past twelve months have you managed to d/l newsgroup data into a Thunderbird account?
Question2: If the answer to question 1 is "yes", might you please recommend an innocuous newsgroup I might use to essay with this business?
Thanks
Chris
