The photo I sent, I can see it perfectly in Thunderbird on the nntp side
- not on the hhtp side, as I expected.
Can’t you see it on nntp? I’m curious.
Of course, for everybody to see it, just send a link.

Yes, it could happen. And spammers, too. IIRC, Jim said that it was
complex to set up.

There are some that use real addresses (ab?). In that case the direct
reply would work - if you also use a real address.
With a perfect gateway the direct post would appear as PM on the web
side and an email on nntp. No chance of getting that (and no, I’m not
asking for that, either).
One of the idiosyncrasies of nntp is that you do not need to use a
verified email address for the from address.

Ah, ok, like code tags.
If you enter them on the nntp side the web side interprets them and they
are displayed correctly. On the nntp side they are just text and
displayed as such, so you need to know what they mean and do the
Code tags used in the web side do help on the nntp side, white space
size is respected and lines not wrapped - which is very important. fonts
and colours inside code tags come bad.
Things like underline or bold or big fonts come here terrible, some
times totally unreadable. Try
