I think we've hit the same problem, some ethereal debugging yields some info that might be
helpful to somebody (sorry, no resources here to help out):


The NNTP protocol appears to use the sequence \r\n.\r\n to signal end-of-message. Using ethereal,
we've determined that for the problem messages, the server is neglecting the leading \r\n
(thus the period appears to be part of the message, and the client waits for a  terminating
sequence that never comes).


In our case, all the problem messages have come from Thunderbird 0.7.2 and 0.7.3

Here is an overview of the issue:
        Key: JAMES-311
    Summary: Nntp very picky with clients
       Type: Bug

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Major

    Project: James
             NNTPServer & Repository

   Reporter: Rodney Crossman

    Created: Sun, 25 Jul 2004 9:15 PM
    Updated: Mon, 13 Sep 2004 2:01 PM
Environment: Tested on Windows xp Pro and Netware 6.5SP@ with Java 1.4.2_04

Cannot read messages posted by some NNTP clients.

For example, if a message is posted with Mozilla Firefox .72 or Groupwise client 6.5 and someone
tries to read them, the client just hands and times out.  Messages posted with Outlook express
work perfectly fine.

This is only an issue if there is a message body.  If the message consist of only the subject,
then it doesn't seem to cause any problems.
