messages since October.

I did re-create all mail- and news account.
Everything fine with mail.
But I have serious pronlems with news:

1.) I can not upload postings to the NGs.

Errormsg (translated from German):

The message could not be uploaded. ....
Protocol: NNTP, Server reply: "441 From address not in Internet
Port: 119, Secure (SSL): Ni, Server error: 441, Error number:

stopped by an error:
The TCP/IP connection has been terminated unexpectedly.
