Atomic Newsgroup Explorer

Atomic Newsgroup Explorer (ANE) is a fast and effective program to extract contacts from UseNet newsgroups: namely, email addresses and usernames.

Using Atomic Newsgroup Explorer is as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Enter any NNTP server address or choose it from the default list
  2. Mark some niche-related UseNet groups to explore
  3. Press "Start" to begin the contact extraction process. The first contact names and email addresses will appear within seconds.

One of the most important features of ANE is the capability to work with private newsgroups locked by password, and servers that do not show all available groups. You can also enter a known UseNet group name manually to process it.

Results can be saved to a .TXT or .CSV file, Windows Clipboard, MS Word or MS Excel application.

Atomic Newsgroup Extractor does not depend on any additional software the way many email grabbers depend on third-party libraries.

Atomic Newsgroup Extractor requires very few machine resources and can run quietly in the background on any computer running Windows (95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7) with a connection to the Internet and open NNTP port.


As some files can contain "dead" or invalid email addresses, we recommend that you verify gathered e-mails for validity. For message broadcasting, you can use Atomic Mail Sender software. Or, just use Atomic Email Studio as your all-in-one email marketing solution.

Some say newsgroups are worthless - not really if you know what you are doing. Excellent product.
