I am surprised why haven’t I come across Newsgator Outlook Edition before? I had my newsgator subscription account after it acquired FeedDemon but I never used the same. I had been searching for a newsreader (NNTP) plug-in for Outlook 2003 for quite sometime, I even found some but none live up to their promise. I went out today again on Google to do a search and stumble upon NewsGator Outlook Edition 2.5.
Outlook Edition is a cool software, very professional, plugs into Outlook, synchronizes with your online feeds at Newsgator and will ultimately be able to do away with FeedDemon (I have to have FeedDemon open most of the time to check the loads of Feeds!). They even have Plug-ins and Extensions that allows you to post to your blogs (Blogger, Movable Type, Typepad, and a bunch of others).
Another cool thing that struck me with the Outlook Edition was that it can read NNTP Newsgroups. Wow! Newsgator cured two of my itches today. I used to use Outllok Express to read Macromedia’s NewsGroup. Btw, currently I read only Macromedia’s NNTP (MM’s NNTP Server: forums.macromedia.com).
