You've obviously cited from log/news.notice. log/news would look like.

Hm. This happened with my first test only, I got a message about that:

| rnews: cant unspool saving to /opt/news/reader/spool/incoming/bad/Hj1zuL
which was actually caused by the hourly rnews -U. However, that had a
different error '437 No colon-space in "X-Empty:" header'.
