What is Usenet?Usenet is a collection of newsgroups where the users can post messages and these posted messages are distributed via Usenet servers. Each server holds these posted messages for a certain period of time. This period of time is also known as retention time. Usenet can be compared with an internet forum, but the main difference is that the messages are not stored in one server and are only available for a certain amount of time. A user posts a message in a certain channel (e.g. newsgroup) and then this message will be distributed via the different newsgroup servers. The other users can login anytime to one of these servers via special software (newreader) and see all new messages in that channel. They can also reply to the newly posted messages and these new posts will also be distributed via Usenet servers. If the retention time of a certain server is 30 days, then these messages will be available just for 30 days in that server.
