    When I was trying to send a specific reply in this ng, I got the
    "invalid content type" error message.
    What does it mean?

    Harry.

    It is difficult to provide a definitive answer, without details
    of the rejected post. However, your headers show that you post
    newsgroup messages via the NNTP Server at Aioe.org.

    Aioe will reject all messages that breach their terms and
    conditions. For instance, they impose strict limits on file
    sizes (which prevents users from attaching files). You will find
    further information at
    http://news.aioe.org/index.php?terms-of-use.

    Thank you for the info, Bob, but I never attach anything in
    these ng's and the file size was very small.
    It was about dll files and someone else's reply, containing the
    same link I had used, went through with flying colors.
    Maybe they are just a nasty bunch at nntp.aioe.org.

    From the headers in your starter post in this thread:

    Content-Type: text/plain;
    format=flowed;
    charset="iso-8859-1";
    reply-type=original
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
    X-Newsreader: Microsoft Windows Live Mail 15.4.3502.922

    So when you posted before (which we have to assume was with AIOE that
    you used here since you never mentioned the NSP that produced the error
    message), did you post using plain-text format (Content-Type:
    text/plain)?

    http://www.aioe.org/index.php?terms-of-use#d2
    "Articles which include a Content-type header which is not "text/plain"
    are refused, ..."

    AIOE is a free NSP that is a text-only groups server (i.e., they do not
    carry binary groups and also ban any HTML or binary posts and posts with
    attachments since those require MIME multi-part content). You never
    identified what was the content of your post, its format, and it if had
    attachments.

    Don't remember the content, format plain text and no
    attachments.

    Since the owner of AIOE is always putzing with his rejection rules and
    not all may be documented (even his web pages contradict each other on
    quota maximums), go ask in the aioe.* newsgroups for help or send the
    NSP owner an email (see http://www.aioe.org/index.php?complaint-guide).

    Thank you for your guidance.

    Harry.
