I need a broadband ISP that:

* allows me to send email with a 3rd party email address
* has an "uncapped" package at a reasonable price
* is reliable
* manual set-up - doesn't require a CD or download
* has all the legal newsgroups, or a large number

Any thoughts?

I think Zen, Eclipse and Metronet will all let you do this, certainly
Zen will.

I didn't think Metronet offered newsgroups, BICBW. There are some other
services which do, of course... Claranet and Plus.Net to name two in the
UK. For text-only, Clara's 9.99/year would do OK... and offers SMTP mail
as well. For binaries, Clara's has a 10 GB/month limit (29.99/year) but
there is no apparent limit on the Plus.Net (1.99/month) 'Essential' a/c.
(just whatever you can 'pull' through your ADSL connection :-)

Plus.Net http://www.plus.net/btbroadband/

Claranet http://www.clara.net/btbroadband/
NB the 29.99 a/c includes domain registration and hosting at Claranet.
