Probably related to NNTP’s special treatment of “.” as the start of
line. I’ll add this to my queue of things to look at with the gateway.

A single dot at the start of a line, and nothing more, signals end of
message in *nix since ever, probably, so it may not be documented. Try

I understand that nntp can use the same convention. If I do that here you
will not see the rest.
single dot above - this line will not get posted.
