Thanks for this. That's what I thought but I wanted to be sure,
unfortunately I don't understand NNTP conversations as well as I should.

I realise that this isn't essentially fetchnews's problem. But would it
be a Good Thing if there was a way for Fetchnews to bail out of this
connection after a set period of time, especially as being unable to post then stops
the subsequent download of new news, plus it's a scary thought on metered
I'm presuming that this isn't the timeout that's already in the
configuration file, that's just for the initial connection IIRC.
Note I'm running Leafnode 1.9.7 ( haven't upgraded as hoping to get new
laptop with new job in a couple of weeks )
If email began the decline of proper english usage,
then SMS finished the job ;)
