For my own, i'm using UUCP to retrieve a news spool (and post
articles) and mail from my ISP on my NetBSD box with my modem I've
dont read any book on UUCP, only docs (in french). In fact, my
configuration is rather simple: it's just a matter of putting the
right stuff in the right files ;-)

I may mail you these files, if you think they may help you.

No, you're not mad, UUCP is a pretty good solution to suck news and
mails (much faster than other solutions i've tried so far).
