Hi all,

I did not see this question answered in the faq or the man pages.

I am running innd-2.3.2-5. Occasionally, someone posts a message that 
generates the following error:

inews failed: Can't send article to the server: 	441 Line 33 too long (Article not posted.)

When looking at the post, I see the the body of the email has no CR/LF's 
- it is one long run-on line. Does anyone know what settings I could 
adjust to keep the server from failing in these cases?

 I don't think it matters, but I'll say it anyhow. No one from outside 
our organization can post to this newsgroup directly. They do it by 
emailing help on our web site, and sendmail, after processing for 
viruses/spam, sends it on to the news server.
