ETH Oberon / PC Native 05.01.2003

Don't know.  Never use a news reader.

> 3.  email, with authenticated send - at least 'LOGIN' type authentication. 

Never tried to use "authenticated send".  From earlier 
messages, you have a Linux system running.  You can  
run your own postoffice.  PostFix works well here.

Not to my knowledge.

Don't understand.  You have used Desktops.OpenDoc http://... html 

The best arrangement I have found is to use 
an Oberon/Aos workstation with a Debian machine 
nearby.  VNC provides a neat access to the 
Debian machine.  Heard that there is a VNC 
server for MS Windows also, in case you need it.
