New in Agent 7

With the release of Agent 7, Forté has re-engineered Agent's internal data structures to accommodate the capacity and size-related issues created by the huge growth of Usenet data. These features include:

Windows 8 Compatible

Agent 7 supports Windows XP → Windows 8.

Article Number Expansion

To meet the rapid growth of data on Usenet, we have updated Agent to store 64-bit article numbers.

Optimized Message Retrieval

Agent now retrieves message bodies by Message ID or Article Number to improve efficiency and reliability.

Improved Saving of Attachments

We've improved the process of saving binary attachments to speed up performance and help prevent Agent's folders from filling up.

Improved Connectivity with SMTP Servers

Agent 7 has updated SMTP (outbound email) login options to keep pace with changes made by service providers.

Optimized for Binaries

Binary Newsgroups
