2.1.4 Utilities Menu Commands
You can use options on the Utility Menu when you need to perform operations that don't require a particular newsgroup to be selected. This includes creating an article that you would like cross posted to multiple newsgroups, individual (non-news) related Electronic Mail, or operations that interact directly with the local file system.
Allows you to begin creating a new article. Any selected newsgroups in the group-list will automatically be listed in the “Newsgroups:” field of the article composition window.
Allows you to send Electronic mail directly from within WinVN. The type of mail system you enter will be determined by the setting of the Mail Transport option on the Configure Communications menu.
Allows you to send a series of mail messages or posts once they have been prepared. This is most useful when posting or mailing attachments that need to be broken up into multiple messages.
