I have been pleased, for the most part, with my news reader built around the TIdNNTP component. However, there is an
anomoly. When I connect to this news server, I have an exception when trying to read certain articles. Interestingly, the
only articles that give me this problem are by Kudzu. Many, but not all of them. An example would be number 161 in this
newsgroup.

The Indy version (with my Delphi 7) is 9.00.10

The exception reads "Unknown Message Part Type." the statement where the exception occurrs is:
IdNNTP1.GetArticle(Id, IdMsg1);
The value of Id, is 161 in this case. IdNNTP1 and IdMsg1 are components dropped on my form. Note the same statment, with
the same connection and newsgroup works fine for the other articles.

What is the problem (and the solution)?

Thanks,

Jon
