I registered Maxnews yesterday. Now I've 2 questions:

How can I reply (in the group) to a message? I can only find a "Post" and "Reply by email" option in the menu, no "Reply in group" or something like that.

How can I change the indentation of the messages? Because now all messages are pressed to the left border. They're also not nested, i.e. the original messages + replies to those messages are not clustered.

You have to select the message and click on the 'Followup' button.

Do you mean the text of an article? Indentation is made with the standard '>' character.

That's a bingo. Thanks.

No, I mean the list of articles itself. In Maxnews all replies in the thread are on the same level so I can't see if a reply is a reply to the original message ór a reply to a reply. Nor are related replies clustered, so it's hard to follow a discussion within the thread. Was hoping there's a solution for that.

I used to be a hardcore Outlook Express (sorry I'll wash my mouth...) user which has a great newsreader in it which shows a great treeview like I tried to explain above, so I'm a bit prejudiced. Recently I switched to Apple so I'm a real newbie here.

Here's a screenshot. Take a look at the high tea thread. The posts that are related are clustered and you can tell replies from replies-to-replies (and replies-to replies from replies-to-replies-to-replies, etc...:))
