Status of NNTP Protocol Support in James

Known defects (also check bugzilla):

 NNTPRepositoryImpl.getGroups()  doesn't know to check the configuration for valid groups. We have the information to check against, but looking at the code for configure(), the variable known as "addGroups" ... someone *knew* and didn't document this "feature." Is this behavior intentional, or should I fix it by filtering out newsgroups that are not listed in config.xml?

This needs to be fixed, and the value should be stored as message metadata. I've e-mailed the RFC author for clarification on whether the count includes headers or only the message body.
