Hi Jeffrey,

Thanks for the reply.

 From my basic configuration I could do only post but I dont see posted 
messages through news clients. I can see the the post is working through 
/var/log/news/news.notice:

Feb 27 16:05:44 rhel4 nnrpd[31926]: 192.168.128.230 connect
Feb 27 16:05:44 rhel4 nnrpd[31926]: 192.168.128.230 post ok 
<es11i0$v5m$1 at rhel4.informatics.lk>
Feb 27 16:05:44 rhel4 nnrpd[31926]: 192.168.128.230 posts received 1 
rejected 0
Feb 27 16:05:44 rhel4 nnrpd[31926]: 192.168.128.230 times user 0.019 
system 0.026 elapsed 0.285

and all posted messages are laying in the /var/spool/news/incoming/ 
directory:

-rw-rw-r--  1 news news  638 Feb 27 15:07 45e3fbf1PwCa7F
-rw-rw-r--  1 news news  646 Feb 27 16:05 45e40980G8NaYG
-rw-rw-r--  1 news news  629 Mar  5 10:49 45eba85erOf4h6


There is no error messages in the log files.

I have set
news:    "|/usr/lib/news/bin/mailpost -d localhost local.test"

Then posted messages are looping continually; /var/log/maillog:

Mar  5 10:56:49 rhel4 sendmail[6222]: l255QmdM006222: to=news, 
ctladdr=mail (8/12), delay=00:00:01, xdelay=00:00:01, mailer=relay,

ctladdr=<news at rhel4.informatics.lk> (8/0), delay=00:00:04, 
xdelay=00:00:04, mailer=prog, pri=188822, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent
Mar  5 10:56:49 rhel4 sendmail[6212]: l255QioA006211:

ctladdr=<news at rhel4.informatics.lk> (8/0), delay=00:00:04, 
xdelay=00:00:04, mailer=prog, pri=160826, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent


Please advice, what should be the basic configuration for to post/read 
through news client such as Thunderbird

Thanks in advance
