Classic Internet apps will not connect


I did not know this until the mac knight owl wrote it for C/net.
Classic internet apps will connect under OS X with ethernet connection, but *not* via dial-up.

this means that I am missing a newsreader, which irritates me.
(I only found one, Radical or something, but that is for osx server only.)


Also, does anybody know how to make filters in Mail?
And to change the font size in messages (incoming)? I managed to change it in the list of headers, but not inside the messages.
