Arrow Outlook Express and RSS from the BB

Please Login to Remove!

This might be far fetched , but I was thinking there was a possibility. I am a graduate student at the University of Phoenix Online and I access all of my stuff via Outlook Express and the newsgroup options.

Does anyone think there is a way to access that via a RSS feeder or Reader on the BB. Maybe for some reading and wireless posting to the newsgroups. I spend alot of time away from the computer and this would be great to figure out.

RSS and newsgroups are 2 completely different technologies. There may be news readers for the BB (I don't know), but you won't be able to use RSS as a way to read (and certainly not post to) newsgroups.

I believe that a company called Attensa could have a solution for you. They have an Outlook function incorporated into their RSS reader, which should do what you want. I don't know if it's exactly right, but give it at look www.attensa.com

I too have been looking for a USENET reader. I don't think one exists. I have solved half of my problem but subscribing to Google Groups (alt.home.repair is the example here . They now have RSS feeds for all the USENET groups. In fact theyoffer RSS 2.0 and Atom feeds and for each 4 different ways of getting the messages. It is very nice.

However if the groups you want are local you may be out of luck.

Did anyone ever find an answer to this question? I am looking for the same thing.

For RSS readers I have reviewed two of them. Both of them are promising upgrades soon. See my tips site.

I just switched from Verizon to Sprint a few weeks ago. After a horrific three days with the Q, I picked up Sprint's 8703e (what I had on Verizon). I noticed that Newsclip was no longer default installed (I don't know if it was a Verizon or RIM deal).

I went in search of that program and instead found that Newsclip had been redesigned and launched as Viigo (Virtual Reach). Viigo is free, best of all. It's a good little RSS reader and will auto-update when you want or just do manual updates. Newsclip's menu response used to be slow and sluggish and they obviously addressed that with Viigo. I used their website to drop in my most-used RSS and Atom feeds (I have a couple hundred in Google Reader, and only use the big ones on my BB). Anyone looking for a decent, free RSS solution for BB would do good to at least check it out.
