News File Grabber is a specialized newsreader which lets you easily download and extract all kinds of attachments and binary files (like photos, movies, pictures and sound) from the newsgroups on the USENET.

You can filter articles by size, sender's address and so on, and you can specify what files are to be downloaded. There are many decoding schemes supported, including MIME, UUE, base64 and yENC (also multi-part files).

You can also download and extract all binaries from a complete newsgroup in one go! The program automatically combines multi-part articles to extract the attachments, but you can also combine them manually. It supports multiple servers, up to 20 simultaneous download threads and secure server connections (SSL). Additionally you can extract from EML-files stored on your hard disk.

News File Grabber enables you to combine articles across multiple newsgroups and servers if parts are missing in a specific newsgroup. Multi part articles are shown in a single line. The background job queue allows you to continue working while downloading articles in the background. The program gives you the ability to search in multiple Newsgroups.

New in this version:

  • Completely rewritten with a new download-engine - no blocking while downloading headers, you can download headers from multiple newsgroups simultaneously, the article list will be filled while downloading, you do not have to wait for finishing the download, and so on.
  • Comfortable XPAT-Search implemented.
  • Support of NZB-files implemented.
  • Auto-search missing parts on the current server or on all defined servers.
  • UNRAR added. You do not need WinRAR to unpack from RAR-files.
  • Handling improved.
  • and much more...
