DESCRIPTION

    INetUtils is a package available from AmiNet by Michael B. Smith
    which includes the ability to post network news. Unfortunately
    you need to be online in order to post news. PostNewsSpool is
    a spooling system that will allow you to post news whilst offline
    and then send the news to your NNTP server when you are next
    online.

NEW FEATURES

    * a few problems fixed

    * will automatically detect if you are online and send immediately
        if you are

    * setup scripts for GRn and Tin newsreaders

    * purge program to keep the size of your news directory down

    * script to print stats on news

    * slightly better documentation

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

    * a dialup network connection either AmiTCP or AS225

    * not tested with AS225 since I don't have that

    * NNTP server

    * enough hard disc room to keep news locally
