Trouble sending news
A problem here that I should have solved a long time ago (whether from
Iyonix or ARMX6). Something in my setup of MPro/ Netfetch/ Hermes/
NewsHound has long failed to send posts to newsgroups such as
c.s.a.apps. (Mailing lists such as this one have no problems).
The news service is eternal-september and NewsHound correctly
retrieves new posts from groups I subscribe to. But on using MPro to
write a reply post, Hermes unsucessfully tries and retries to despatch
the message. Its error file reports:
> Error: <news.eternal-september.org>: recipient address must contain a domain
The post's headers (as read from MPro's Outgoing mail and news queues
group) look like this:
> Subject: Re: [current topic]
> Newsgroups: comp.sys.acorn.apps
> From: Bernard Boase <b.boase@...>
> X-Editor: EmailEdit 2.02
> Path: boase.myzen.co.uk%boase
> Date: Tue, 20 Sep 2016 15:44:38 +0100
> Message-ID: <[whatever]>
> References: <[whatever]>
> Lines: 13
> User-Agent: Messenger-Pro/7.08 (MsgServe/7.07) (RISC-OS/5.23)
> Bcc: news.eternal-september.org
although that last Bcc: line is not present in MPro's Sent News group
version of the item.
Hermes accounts dialogue has a Send news entry with apparently good
data, but it is greyed out. Might that be significant?
Where does that Bcc: get defined? It isn't even a valid email address,
so may be the cause of the error message. What else might be
preventing a successful send, do you think?
Grateful for ideas of what setup details to check.
