No protocol... just a nice thing to do when the problem is solved :-)
Glad you got it working! Note: for newsgroups that I expect to see some
crossposting to related newsgroups (not spammers) & I want to be alerted
that I'll: 1) either need to remove the crossposts when responding, or
2) ignore the post because it's been crossposted, I set the filter to
mark it as read, flag it, and mark it as 'work'; that way the post
header appears in orange with a flag & I immediately know that it
includes crosspost headers.
