How can I achieve to automatically download all files from a newsgroup? BTW, I would prefer to be independent of MegaSearch and thus don’t want to use Watchdog.
I hoped that adding a subscription for the newsgroup, then setting “Auto download bodies” to the same number as the number of downloaded headers in “Download #” could do the trick, but it doesn’t. After fetching all new headers I still have to manually select all posts in the Newsreader and select “Download”.
And if I select a post that I already downloaded, but where I moved the file out of the downloads folder, then selecting “Download” is downloading the file again. So I need to remember until when I have downloaded, e.g. by marking all as read and hiding all read posts. Quite an effort.
Is there any better way?
An auto download rule seems to be on the todo list, according to https://www.usenapp.com/forum/d/271-auto-download-from-rules. Would this be the way to go?
