There is, still around - eg on BeShare - an old BeOS app: Pineapple newsreader (which is also available for free on the author's website: http://www.platinumball.net/pineapple/registration.html), but this application, Unfortunately, does not properly work on Haiku. It starts correctly and looks very good, but when you try to populate the folders of Pineapple from the app itself (eg after adding a new account / server), you will get an error message about the write permissions. No matter where these folders are located (obviously I tried inside writable directories, also on the Desktop), you will always get this error. Eg from the File menu try to make a new folder: you will get:
The funny thing is that these folders (
File> Folder> Create) are really created on the disk, but Pineapple still complains and doesn't show these folders from itself.
I attach the original zip file (remember to register, because it will complains about the trial status)
