Can I Specify A Date Range To Browse Groups

Post by lj455 »

I know I can download headers back x amount of days, but can I download headers from a range, say from 200 days to 300 days?

The only way I know to do that is to start downloading headers at the maximum age (300 days in this example) and watch the report of the age being downloaded. When it gets below the minimum (200 days), go offline. Then, if you like, you can delete the headers newer than 200 days.

7.0 Final has an advanced search filter that lets you set the minimum and maximum number of days but it doesn't control the range downloaded, it just filters what you see. It's a funnel icon to the right of the search filter box, or you can double-click F3. It doesn't appear to be in the 8.0 betas but the syntax still works: MinDays:200 MaxDays:300.
