    I keep getting the message unable to post Error 441 Header line too long.

    Outlook Express, eternal-september. XP nz.general newsgroup. Broadband.

    I've tried shortening the subject line, and taking out all three names etc
    of previous posters. I tried breaking those up into shorter lines, same
    result.
    Still the same message. Which is the Header line anyway?

    I've googled error 441 and there is a limit to the characters, but I can't
    see anywhere I have exceeded anything. It's a fairly short post and all my
    other posts today have had no trouble.

    (Error 441 on Google brought up a dangerous page first, huge warning in red
    letters. I didn't open it.)

    I've tried restarting the computer.

    Any simple ideas I could try please? Otherwise I will rewrite the message
    and see what happens.

    Thank you

    My guess is the “References†line has become too long. Were you trying to
    reply to the latest in a long line of postings?

    Unfortunately, you cannot normally edit this header line. For what it’s
    worth, KNode (which is what I mostly use) has a similar bug.

    I'm only the third person there. Also I removed all the first bit to see if
    it would post, but it didn't work.

    I'll just post again and see what happens.
    Thank you
