Atomic Newsgroup Explorer (ANE) is a fast and effective program to extract contacts: e-mail addresses and user names from newsgroups.

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 interested usenet groups to explore;
  3. press "Start" to begin extraction. The first contact addresses and names will appear in a few seconds.

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

The results can be saved to a .txt or .csv file, Windows Clipboard or MS Word or MS Excel application.

Atomic Newsgroup Extractor does not depend on any additional software the way many email grabbers depend on the 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 and Vista) with a functioning connection to the Internet with open NNTP port.


As some files can contain invalid e-mail addresses, we recommend that you verify gathered e-mails for validity. For a message broadcast you can use target="_blank">Atomic Mail Sender software. We also recommend that you have a look at Atomic Email Studio - all-in-one email marketing solution.
