Some more investigating: it looks like thunderbird is not emitting a \r\n at the end of the
message, while other clients (mozilla 1.5 in my tests) are. So the end of a thunderbird message
is just \r\n.\r\n
while the end of a mozilla message ends with \r\n\r\n.\r\n

(line-ending for last line of the message, followed by the end-of-message marker. actually,
in all my tests the end-of-message marker is being sent as a separate packet.)

I don't know whether it's legal for Thunderbird not to emit a newline at the end of its messages,
but it's surely wrong for the server to misbehave as a result.

Note that manually adding newlines at the end of thunderbird messages makes the problem go
away. Unfortunately, this doesn't help when attachments are involved.

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 2:27 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.
