Header question

Hey guys,

I’ve been messing with Python’s NNTP modules, and in the manual it shows how to
post to a newsgroup from a file, assuming you include the properly formatted
headers in the file.

My questions are…

  1. which headers are standard(I seem to recall that OE has some
    proprietary ones…)?
  2. Are they passed along with the message in plain text?
  3. How are some of them like “Path”, or “Message ID” generated?

I’m just playing with this now but I’m developing a app in Python that may
eventually have NG access built in so I wanted to get an idea of how it
all works :slight_smile:
