News Rover is the ultimate tool for extracting information from Usenet newsgroups. News Rover automates the process of searching for messages, downloading them, decoding file attachments, and reconstructing files that are split across multiple messages. News Rover does all of this automatically while you are at work, sleeping, or browsing the net. When you are ready to read messages and look at the pictures it has collected, they are ready for instant access on your computer. News Rover does the work, so you don't have to waste time waiting for messages to be downloaded and decoded.
News Rover allows you to specify Include and Exclude expressions that control which messages are collected. These expressions can be elaborate and can include and, or, not and near operators and parentheses. By using an Exclude expression, you can easily exclude many spam messages. In addition, you can exclude messages that are cross-posted to more than a specified number of newsgroups.
