def get_user() -> str: ... def set_user(value: str) -> None: ...
user = property(get_user, set_user)
This property contains a user identifier to login as in the news_server. If this property is set to a non-empty string, then when connecting to the news_server an AUTHINFO USER command is sent in order to provide authentication information for the user. Although this command is not part of the NNTP protocol, it is widely used by news servers for authentication purposes.
