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