Description
XanaNews has an option to split posts when it contains more than x number of lines (default 5000 lines).
When you try to post a message exceeding that number of lines it will send two or more posts to the news-server with in the same subject line an indication of the message number (e.g. [1/3], [2/3], [3/3]).
The news-server rejects this type of posting.

PS I don't know if other newsreaders have this option and if they do, what the default setting for it is.
Steps to Reproduce:
None
Workarounds
In XanaNews go to Account or Newsgroup properties -> Posting Settings ->
- Set "Split posts with more than" to 0 (zero) lines.
