Is there a version of rn (not trn) still available for FreeBSD?
Appreciate any pointers.

Why don't you just run "trn +x +X"?

If you really, really want rn, go to ftp.uu.net:/networking/news/readers/rn.

1. Killfiles in RN/RN in general

You have no control key?  How can you edit your messages?  What kind of
terminal is it, a TRS80 Model 1?  (can't be that, it has lower case).
Lowercase "k" will only junk existing messages on the current subject.  
Capital "K" will kill that subject.
With rn or trn, you can't read a group without subscribing.  But you can
unsubscribe simply by pressing "u".

 >3. I also recently started reading my email without the menu.

You should be able to delete all the messages by typing 'd *'.
Some systems have two programs called mail and mailx.  Mailx is a little
smarter than mail; it understands commands like 'd 1-10'.
