You can let your newsreader communicate with the server using an encrypted channel. This is called NNTP over TLS, or NNTPS.
Albasani uses a self-signed certificate. Configuring Thunderbird 3.x to use it takes a number of steps.
Download Albasani's Certificate
Click on the following link and save the file to some temporary location.
Import Albasani's Certificate
Tools → Options
→ Select tab "Advanced"
→ Select sub-tab "Certificates"
Click on image to enlarge.
→ View Certificates
→ Select the tab "Servers"
On a default installation the list is empty.
Select certificate to import
This is a standard file selection dialog. Navigate to the file reader.albasani.net.crt you downloaded in the first step.
You should now have one entry in list.
Select the line that starts with reader.albasani.net
Edit web site certificate trust settings
→ Trust the authenticity of this certificate.
