How do I go about creating a news group reader.  I'm not looking for someone to write the program for me.  Just what controls do I use and how do I open a connection to the server and retrieve the message Headers and Bodies.

mabry has a good and cheap control for newsreaders, news.ocx. I have long tried it and found very (perhaps too much) simple.
Anyway to open a connection after connecting a socket on port
21 send LIST CRLF command after server answers if 200 or 201 ok
to have the list of newsgroups. To request headers the command is NEWNEWS ALT.2600 940105 GMT TIME FORMAT (always terminated by crlf) (or XOVER groupname date as explained above). ARTICLE followed by article-id or article number (retrieved from the NEWNEWS answer to get articles.

you have to getfamiliar with winsock calls if you plan to
create your own interface. After connecting to socket with calls to winsock the code is exactly what i explained. i.e.
dim retval ass integer
' call to winsock
retval=myconnectprocedure
ifretval=connected then
command="Get etc."
'
send(command)
if you plan to use news or any other ocx the ocx does make the job for you.
