The useful part of the error messages is "437 Binary in non-binary 

This is a message from 'cleanfeed', telling you that an article with 
binary attachments was posted to a newsgroup that is not supposed to 
get binary articles.

You can either add the additional groups to 'bin_allowed', or set 
'block_binaries' to 0 to prevent cleanfeed from even checking that.
