NNTP issues with the Delphi Firemonkey group (and most likely others)

Hello,

I'm using Thunderbird as newsreader (no advertisements for other readers
necessary Rudy, for my use it mostly works fine, except now) and since 1-2 days
it no longer fetches new posts.

I removed the Firemonkey group now and re added it. When I try to download
messages he says that the group contains 350xx (don't remember the exact figure)
messages. When I opt to only download 6 or less this works, when I try to download
7 or more it fails and I cannot properly retry downloading messages (even when I opted
to not mark all others read, I guess it would download messages newer than those 7
from the last attempts, but posting frequency in that group isn't high enough or I would
have to add some test post via webfrontent).

Any suggestions?
Any known issues?
I can see that there are newer posts and in the web frontend I can also read those.

Greetings

Markus

NNTP is working fine for me, using Xananews. Been getting new posts
today just fine.

Yesterday, there was a period of time where Xana was having trouble
posting messages, so it got stuck in a queue loop posting them over and
over, but the server was actually posting them (so I had to go into the
web interface and delete the duplicates).

No troubles today.

Hello,

no, still doesn't work for me.
When I delete the group (this happens for all groups on that server, but it doesn't happen for those
on the JEDI server or on the Inno Setup one) and re-add it, it finds quite a log ot new messages,
but it never properly downloads them. Statusbar shortly flasses as if he's attempting to do so,
but he fails.

When I tell him just to download the last 100 messages (the last one works btw.!), then statusbar
flashes a message about downloading message 1 to 81 (!) but he never does this and when I retry
he doesn't either.

When I opted to download only the last message, retrying the download (because that one
gets downloaded) doesn't bring any new messages.

Greetings

Markus

Then I suggest you get a better NNTP reader. Thunderbird is
notoriously buggy.

Using XanaNews + having no problems so far. Although there seem to be
very few messages/posts the last days.
