here is the syslog on this problem:

Jun 14 03:34:54 lfs1 rnews: rejected 437 Duplicate "Newsgroups" header
Jun 14 03:34:54 lfs1 innd: localhost:15 closed seconds 4 accepted 0
refused 0 rejected 1

it looks like the news server is refusing the email that you sent from the
newsgroup because it has a newsgroup header.   i guess this is to prevent
an endless loop from occuring - email from the news server reflected back
over and over again till the server fills up.

hmm, let me look at this.  please post to email until i have this sorted
