Local Newsserver (NNTP)

Add Header ... Message-ID

If marked, a unique Message-ID is added to articles posted to Hamster's local newsserver, if they were posted without one (i. e. existing Message-IDs will never be overwritten or replaced).
The local-part of the Message-ID consists of coded values for current time, task-number and a counter per time (similar to Message-IDs generated by INN newsserver). The domain-part is the configured FQDN.

Add Header ... User-Agent

If marked, Hamster's "User-Agent:" header is added to articles posted on local NNTP server.

Add Header ... X-Trace

If marked, a "X-Trace:" header is added to posted articles. The content of such a trace-header consists of the following values:

FQDN/localhost, time, thread-id, client's IP, user-id, thread-id (hex), date-str., time-str.

If posted article already contains such a header, article will not be rejected, but existing header will be renamed to 'X-Old-Trace:'.

Example:

	X-Trace: xx.yy.zz 963151230 236 127.0.0.1 (1 ec 2000.07.09 14:00:30)

Option: Search unknown Message-IDs on all remote servers

If marked, Hamster tries to get an unavailable article - accessed by its Message-ID (ARTICLE <mid>) - from all remote servers on next pull.
