In my case, it appears to be Hermes/NewsHound that is having the
trouble, not e-s, but the end result is the same in not getting posts
sent out. I too use MessengerPro/NetFetch/Hermes/Newshound.
I have used e-s for years to receive copies of news group posts, but
for longer than I can remember have been unable to post via its
service to such as c.s.a.misc.
Yesterday I emailed Jim to ask his experience with the posting side of
using e-s, but perhaps the question should be put here too.
Using MPro etc. to send posts to news groups, my Hermes setup tries
repeatedly without success, and the post has to be cancelled. Hermes

User-Agent: Messenger-Pro/7.08 (MsgServe/7.07)
and contain no To: field, just the Bcc: one (is that correct?). (I use
alt.test as a suitable destination for testing to news groups).
I have checked Username and Password registered with e-s, and all
seems okay there.
Since this issue is not related to e-s's change of servers, I have
changed the Subject line to create a parallel thread.
