I copied active file from old newsserver to new newsserver ( I was under
the miss-apprehension the groups would automatically be generated ) 
Thanks that is now only 6 messages seemed to have
transferred( today's quota so far) instead Of all the messages. (1272

	I have tried entering ctlinnd param c 0 and changing the
parameter in inn.conf (artcutoff to 0 - then restarting news server )
just in case this was having any effect

But still 1272 messages have been refused as specified by syslog.
Shows no errors

You'll need to examine the ~news/log/news file to see the rejection 

The file format is documented in innd(8).

Neither of these files is relevant to this issue.  readers.conf controls

what articles clients can read, and newsfeeds controls how news is sent
