But it doesn't. When I create the batchfile as suggested by an earlier post 
of yours, (well, I modified the regex match for "@", since that character 
doesn't exist in the token fo the 2.2 history file.) I end up with a file 
with entries such as, ""/article_num.

When I run 'innxmit <news server> <$patchoutgoing/list>', innxmit returns:

"Ignoring line....." and nothing is ever transmitted.

1. While at work, "user A" subscribed to "" prepares an 
article and sends it.

2. "User B", who is NOT at work; rather is sitting home, checking for new 
articles on "", does not receive "user A's" post. However, 
while at work, "user A" receives his own post.

3. In other words, a user on our local reader can send/receive articles just 
fine. But when that same user reads his news at home, his articles which were 
posted while at work, do not show up on his home machine.
