That's strange, as I think I posted the message to the news group, and my server contains the message with the following Headers:

Path: sol.wohnheim.uni-ulm.de!134.60.220.16
Content-Type: multipart/signed; protocol="application/pgp-signature";
 boundary="=.J)xw2neA.fQyRJ"

There seems to be no colon in the delimiter. So the conversion seems to be appeared somewhere between my news server and mailman.

Thanks, that was a really good explanation.

Thanks, I'll do this. But my and your messages don't have this header (so you seem to deliver per NNTP, too.), so I have to search a little to grab this header :-)
