My SE/30 is online and I noticed this forum has NNTP access, which I am not too familiar with... What client would be recommended to read/reply to messages here?

To start with, I'd give NewsWatcher a go: ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/mac/comm/newswatcher/

Requires System 7.0 or later, compatible with MacTCP and OT.

I've modified the server to support older clients and tested NewsWatcher 2.22, and last I checked everything but attachments was working fine. If you run into anything odd, just let me know.

Yep! You should be able to post/reply directly from the client via NNTP.

OK, here's a test... I wasn't sure how to do it before. =)

I haven't been able to post via NewsWatcher. It says posting is disabled. I took that to mean I had entered my password incorrectly, but attempting to fix that (using both possibilities) doesn't seem to have helped.
