I got one of the administrators here to try with his News client using 
SSL and it worked without a problem, no timeout, and the message was 
posted to the newsgroup and e-mailed out.
So, I'm left thinking my client doesn't like the SSL Certificate, well, 
basically, that my client is fubar'd.
I'm going to try another news client and possibly fiddle with Stunnel 
(Pan doesn't support SSL)... if I still had no luck I'll do exactly as 
you advised above.

Thank you for the advice.
