    Log Message:
    2 new (mutually exclusive) command-line options: -force and -filter

    These options are to attempt to address the issue (#178) reported by Michael J. Ryan
    with regards to a Thunderbird error:
    "Sending of the messages failed. You can only send to one news server at a time."
    when attempting to reply to a message that was posted to multiple newsgroups, but the server has not actually advertised that it serves that newsgroups (because
    it doesn't or the names a different than one the server uses for the same area).

    -force will force the export "Newsgroups" header field to contain only the name of the locally selectec newsgroup.
    -filter will remove any Newsgroup names from the exported "Newsgroups" header if they don't exist on the local server.

    Anything's possible, but I don't see how. Also, testing locally here, NNTP seems to be working fine.

    If you go back to and older revision, does it work then?

    Log Message:
    Insure that message base is closed before opening another.

    This should address the issue raised by Michael J. Ryan in issue #4.
    The command in question ("GROUP") would attempt to open the message
    base associated with the specified newsgroup name without closing
    the currently open/selected message base (if there was one). This would
    result in multiple simultaneously open message bases and could result
    in an exhaustion of open file descriptors leading to a failure to open
    any additional files (includign message bases) and thus a subsequent
    "GROUP" command would fail with the wrong "!no such group" error.

    FYI:

    i found that cardbook extension of thunderbird did not work with sbbs
    nntp service. I submit to cardbook author and sems to fixed now

    Anyway, this issue is only with sbbs service, i have another nntp
    accounts without problems.

    yeah i guess that parsing the from address was cause this issue

    maybe the "/" char break the standard use@domain (rf822) ? if true, can
    be possible to replace with another character?

    Looking at that issue report, it seems it had problems with user@ADDRESSes that did not include "/" as well, so I don't think that was the issue.

    Nothing in RFC822 appears to disallow a "/" in the "domain" portion of the mailbox addr-spec.

    A "/" in an addrss appears to be RFC822-compliant.

    because i think that another nntp reader can fail too.

    also i notice that the To: field show:

    To: Digital Man <>

    are better if show:

    To: Digital Man <Digital Man@VERT> or <Digital.Man@VERT>

    Messages posted in networked message areas (echoes, newsgroups) do not contain a destination address.
