    Hello,

    Lots ISP don't accept proxysocks for sending mail and News.

    I use SocksCap32 on Usenet News with News Surfer 2.30 (d/l : http://lettermanstationery.tripod.com/newssurfer230.zip) as Newsreader.
    Good proxysocks are hard to find : there are often obsolete on the lists, you ought to find and test your own proxysocks with TrojanHunter or Angry IP scanner. And don't give it publicly when you find a good one or it will be HS in a few hours :)

    No need using both :)

    You may find tutorials with screenshots on http://www.optimix.be.tf (SocksCap32 Page but in French).

    Angry IP Scanner : http://www.angryziber.com/ipscan/
    TrojanHunter french Tut and d/l : http://membres.lycos.fr/smaugsd/fxp/Tutoriaux/Scanner.htm?tut=

    I send all my mails with Mail Direct, Personal SMTP server through a proxysocks.

    Really handy and you IP never appears :)

    Rgds,

    JacK
