Allow filter to delete unwanted headers during download

When updating headers in many groups, the large number can overload NewsLeecher and bring it to a standstill. Many headers are spam (e.g. 774 byte headers) and sometimes I want to get headers only from a particular poster and reject the rest. After the download (often having to kill NL with Task Man...

Allow filter to find certain files in a set

I'm not sure "set" is the correct term but I'm talking about one line containing several files with a + sign that can be clicked on to expand to show the individual files. Suppose that under the Articles tab I have a large number of headers and I want to download all of the primary par2 files (those...

Variable passwords

In addition to the list of fixed RAR passwords known to NewsLeecher, allow a combination of fixed characters and variables. One variable should be the filename, another might be the poster's name and there may be others. So you might have a password like: "19"+%filename% It might also be useful to t...

A drop-down menu offers several options including Close Newsleecher and Turn Off Computer. The other choices are Disconnect From Usenet and Run Command Line. There's also...

Re: Quit Newsleecher when downloads complete

I'm surprised nobody said how to do this. In version 7 (and I think 4 and maybe earlier):

1) Start a download.
2) Click on the Queue tab.
3) Click on When Empty. A drop-down menu offers several options including Close Newsleecher and Turn Off Computer.

Is SuperSearch Unencrypted?

I'm running Newsleecher 7.0 Final with SSL encryption enabled on port 563. I just signed up for your "Ready to Go" plan and, wouldn't you know, SuperSearch is down (the status page says you're migrating it to a new server). In researching it I looked at NL's News & Log tab. It says SS tried to conne...
