What are Headers?
A header is just summary information for the article. OpNews parses this information, collates it and displays it in the article window. All the headers for a group are stored in the corresponding .dat file.

Downloading headers
Click on Get Headers to start downloading the headers for the currently selected group. Downloads will begin simultaneously from all enabled servers and an approximate progress count will be displayed in the status bar. You can continue using OpNews in the meantime, but you cannot move to another group.

Note Remember that even though a header is available on your news server, the corresponding article itself may have been deleted. In this case you will get error 423 from the server, and OpNews will attempt to use a different server. The download will fail if none of the servers actually contain the article.
