440 Posting Not Allowed

Postby Maelstroem » Sat Jun 09, 2018 1:46 pm

Anyone able to post through Astraweb?

I just get a '440 Posting Not Allowed' error in PowerPost, default posting is via ssl.astraweb.com but the other 2 SSL servers give the same result, even the non-ssl server news.astraweb.com is not allowing posting either! Posting via Newsbin gives ERROR in the logging tab but shows '440 posting not allowed' in the server tab under the 'Header Download' when you expand the server you posted to, in my case ssl.astraweb.com. Has Astraweb suddenly banned posting as there is nothing on their site about posting problems, but frankly, they've never had anything like an accurate and up to date service status to begin with!!

Posting through Blocknews is working so it's not an issue at my end and points to an Astraweb issue!

Yep, complete dicks!!

Time to look into anonymous posting, read a bit about using a throw away email, VPN, buying bitcoin then buying a cheap usenet account with bitcoin to post.
