https://inn.eyrie.org/trac/changeset/10070 tells me
Articles containing control characters or whitespace-only content lines
in their headers are now rejected by B<nnrpd> at injection time.
This appears to be pretty painful. AFAICT some Windows spam filters create
without any content after colon-space.
Wouldn't it be better to silently ignore all the empty "X-something: "
I stumbled over this problem via mailpost. After the upgrade to 2.6.1
tons of EMails got rejected with an error message
inews failed: inews: cannot send article to server: 441 Invalid syntax
encountered in headers (unexpected byte, no colon-space, or empty content
line) inews: article not posted
