Well, BeroList corrupts MIME (essentially all folded lines, most
commonly multipart/* stuff like this). Do not send HTML or combined
HTML/plain text, simply send plain text without HTML. BTW, the charset
is a lie. It's US-ASCII and your Microsoft "Internet" Mail declares the
wrong content. Get a proper mailer please, you'll have more fun in the

Yes. Consult the manual of your newsreader, check how to subscribe to
groups (you may need to make it display unsubscribed groups), and then
subscribe to some groups and _read_ the leafnode placeholder in each of
these groups. This should fill your interesting.groups.

If that does not help, try:

1. telnet localhost 119
2. group some.news.group
3. head 1
4. group some.other.news.group
5. head 1
6. quit

And you should have some.news.group and some.other.news.group in
interesting.groups. If not, the permissions may hint to an installation
problem, but no installation problems have been reported recently, not
on MacOS X either.
