As it turns out the server I am using probably just can't cope with
listing the demanded 235 000 posts all at once. The articles are
there, the xover command is recognized but it's just too much.

Is there a way to make fetchnews download posts in "batches", ten,
maybe twenty thousand every run? Without overloading the server with
listing three, four, five or six hundred thousand articles first?

The "smarter tool" term was very unfortunate, Matthias, I'm sorry.
