I have not found any help on setting up a 'Newsgroup' account but I

This is the sequence I have tried:-

Edit; Preferences;Newsgroup folder; Protocol 'nntp'
Edit ; identity, email address (as at my ISP)
Receiving email ; server  username 'username' at my
Sending email ; SMTP server address of my ISP.

Otherwise I am receiving normal email OK and like the feel of Evolution.

The only info I was able to find when doing this was this article:

However, although I was able to set up this up successfully, when I
tried using it I found it very buggy.  Some newsgroups wouldn't always
update, and I couldn't find any way to tell it to, say, get the next 300
headers.  Also, the features for marking and tracking posts were very
limited (as far as I could tell).  I ended up replacing it with
Thunderbird in the end.

I wish Novell would get this fixed though.  I would really like to be
able to post to and monitor newsgroups in Evolution, rather than using a
separate application (it's the only thing I use Thunderbird for).
