DESCRIPTION

    INetUtils is a package available from AmiNet by Michael B. Smith
    which includes the ability to post network news. Unfortunately
    you need to be online in order to post news. PostNewsSpool is
    a spooling system that will allow you to post news whilst offline
    and then send the news to your NNTP server when you are next
    online.
    
NEW FEATURES              

    * a few problems fixed

    * will automatically detect if you are online and send immediately
        if you are
        
    * setup scripts for GRn and Tin newsreaders
    
    * purge program to keep the size of your news directory down
    
    * script to print stats on news
    
    * slightly better documentation

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS
    
    * a dialup network connection either AmiTCP or AS225
    
    * not tested with AS225 since I don't have that
    
    * NNTP server
    
    * enough hard disc room to keep news locally
