Im running INN-1.7.2 on Slackware 3.6 Linux and use
Suck 4.0 to collect from and post news to, my ISP -
news.demon.co.uk. I use Netscape as the frontend.
I can download messages ok, and post using
rpost -d -b /var/spool/news/out.going/demon \
when connected to my ISP.
However, if I subsequently try to send messages from
Netscape, they end up in the /var/spool/news/articles
tree ok, but the out.going/demon batchfile is not created.
Through trial and error, I got it to work by doing a
ctlinnd reload active ""
after the rpost command.
Is this necessary, or have I simply misconfigured my INN
