In my message about cross posting I wrote:
I wanted to cross post an article to
mozilla.support.seamonkey and bellsouth.net.support.news-service.
The news server newsgroups.bellsouth.net carries both groups
and I am subscribed to the mozilla.support.seamonkey newsgroup
on both servers.
you really shouldn't cause the posting to the support
group on bellsouth will not show up here
However connected to the server newsgroups.bellsouth.net,
when I tried to cross post my article, I received the error
message that I can not post an article to two servers!
I had to post the article separately to each group!
because you've got it listed on another server. Remove
the newsgroup on that other server and your posting
should go through. Then again, read what I wrote above.
What's going on? Why was SM checking the mozilla server
In addition while I was composing my article I was receiving
spurious messages from the system:
One message complained about improper characters in the message
and asking me whether I wanted to send the message in utf-8 encoding.
yeah, thats normal. If the posting your sending is in
utf-8 and you're usually using another character
encoding, then you'll get that message
A second message complained that my message could not be saved as
a draft message and that I could only post to one news server at
Each of the error messages popped up several times with about
4 or 5 minute intervals.
What's going on?
its thinking that you're trying to save to two servers
when it should only be one
*IMPORTANT*: Sorry folks, but I cannot provide email
help!!!! Emails to me may become public
