    I think you should use a Web Browser

    since

    all MS newsgroups are being shut down...

    the only access will be with a web browser

    Not exactly, there already existed local nntp2html bridges:

    2 MS bridges, 1 for answers and 1 for the rest,



    but I recommend Community Forums NNTP bridge



    http://communitybridge.codeplex.com/



    Current features



    * Replaces the MS NNTP Bridge completely

    * Unifies the access to scocial and answers forms to a single NNTP

    server (no two servers needed!)

    * Autologin and Autominimize

    * Displays your email address, if you have configured your username

    and email (will allow Ctrl-H to work in WLM)

    * X-Face support for MVPs, Microsofties and Admins

    * Encodes Subject/From only, if non-ASCII characters are present

    * MessageId contains a valid domain name

    * The message/thread URL of the forum will be submitted in the X-

    Comments header, so you can directly go to the web page

    * Converts "http(s)" links into html links, if posted in plain/text

    * Supports the conversion of html-web-articles into plain/text

    articles for your newsreader

    * Thunderbird can display the article source code ;)

    * Many tracing options to see the newsclients messages/responses

    * You can extend the "CommunityForumsNNTPServer.ArticleConverter"

    without the LiveID SDK; for compiling the whole source code, you need

    to download and install the Windows Live ID Client 1.0 SDK
