is there a way to send messages to a Usenet group. The tab ÂSendingÂ in the account preferences only allow me to choose SMTP or Sendmail. I guess that does not work with NNTP. I only have the following technical details about the Usenet server . eternal-september.org can be accessed via the following server names and ports: Client Settings Server name: news.eternal-september.org Port : 119 (NNTP) Port : 563 (encrypted connection NNTPS) Servername: reader80.eternal-september.org Port : 80 Servername: reader443.eternal-september.org Port : 443 (encrypted connection NNTPS) With SMTP I tried to send the message, but the following was printed to the terminal.

Have you registered at that site? This is required according to the information there.
Yes, I registered at that site. (Otherwise I would not have been able to read the news in the first place.)
I have sparely visited Usenet lately, but I can remember having successfully sent messages to newsgroups on the nntp server of my provider. So, in the Send options of that nntp account there is smtp and I put in the user name and password of that smtp server.
What SMTP server?
Have you tried other email clients like mozilla thunderbird and opera ?
Using the newsreader Pan  reading and posting works without problems. So I recommend using Pan until the bugs in Evolution are fixed. Pan even had a new release a week ago and a lot of features were added. Thanks, Paul  http://pan.rebelbase.com/  http://git.gnome.org/browse/pan2/plain/ChangeLog
