I was kind of incomplete with my last posting, sorry about that.
I also should have told here, that after running fetchnews the article DOES
disapear from /var/spool/news/out.going/ as if it was posted, i checked this
before, and after running fetchnews.
This also isnt a 'one article' incident, i have tried at least 20 times posting
to two different test groups witth different test postings, but everytime with
the same outcome.

Ok, i tried this, but all the server returned was: 

423 No such article number in this group

So again I'm lost here, first the server tells me the article is already
upstream, and when I check through telnet it isn't there at all.

I get the feeling something up there with my ISP isn't right, or maybe I did
something verry stupid, all I know is that I've used leafnode for a few years
without any of these problems with my other ISP.

I will get in touch with them.

Thanks for you time, and your quick response,
