 Indeed, digitalmars newsserver has a lot of inconsitencies with nntp
 protocol. We already have several complaints from users concerning
 this particular server. It reaaly breaks the standard. I'm afraid that
 we will not patch Omea for that.

is this true? can anything be done about it? will anything be done about it? what server is it running?

I don't know. But I've used at least five different news readers and none of them have had any problems with news.digitalmars.com. -- Derek (skype: derek.j.parnell) Melbourne, Australia 8/02/2008 5:28:11 PM
