Newsgroups, how to manage downloaded posts

Discussion in 'AMD Thunderbird' started by Anthony Buckland, May 4, 2011.

  1. I'm on a steep learning curve this week: new machine, new to
    Thunderbird, new to Windows 7, ...

    I've established a newsreading account (obviously), but find
    some basic operations I was used to in Outlook Express seem
    to be out of reach.
    1) How do I remove messages I'm through with from my downloads?
    Every attempt so far has resulted in my being told that
    the messages aren't mine, so I can't get rid of them.
    2) How do I achieve the equivalent of Outlook Express'
    'catch up', which eliminates from consideration all posts
    I haven't downloaded?
    Thanks for any responses.
