You are here: Home / Add-ins for Microsoft Outlook / MAPILab NNTP for Outlook / How to use remote headers

MAPILab NNTP is a true remote MAPI transport, where you can use the remote headers feature of Outlook. This feature is available in all versions of Outlook. Please note, that headers can only be placed into your Inbox folder (this is an Outlook limitation) and as a result it may become rather difficult to mark messages from hundreds of newsgroups. When a marked message is downloaded, it will be placed into a newsgroup folder.
