Hi Gabriele,

Did you try the patch I sent in my previous mail in answer to Todd?

More than 800 people use daily the news server of my engineering School
on SSL connexions and without any problem (most of them with
Thunderbird/SeaMonkey/Icedove/etc. and some with Apple Mail, slrn,
Outlook Express/Windows Mail and surely other I am not aware of).
