I have this problem as well. Here is my configuration

Client: Debian Unstable running mozilla 1.6
Server: Debian Stable with backported inn 2.4.0 and ssl 0.9.7

One slight modification for my case, I can post messages if they contain only
text / html. The failure occurs for me when I attempt to attach anything,
including inline html images or other actual binary attachments. If I kill
mozilla while the message is being sent, it will send it before exiting. If I
allow it to stay up, the server eventually reports that the posting has timed
out. Posting works correctly when I allow connections without SSL.

I would love to provide you a NSPR log of the protocol transaction, but when SSL
is enabled, no NNTP session information is logged (another bug?). The server
logs do not provide any indication why Mozilla is hanging, the session on the
server side shows the start of the post, but nothing is delivered unless I kill
mozilla.

The same error is occurring with me.  My setups are as follows: Dell Inspiron
600m, 768MB RAM, Windows XP SP1+all current patches, Thunderbird 0.7.1; Athlon
XP1500 ECS K7S5A with 512MB RAM, Windows XP SP1+all current patches, and
Thunderbird 0.6; Same Athlon XP, Slackware 10, Kernel 2.6.7, Mozilla 1.7.1.

The NNTP+SSL server is running a hand-compiled and configured INND on a Dell
Optiplex GX110 with 256MB RAM, Slackware Linux 9.1, kernel 2.4.22.

Other people in my company are also experiencing identical symptoms.

This is strange -- I just encountered this bug while using stunnel to wrap an
unencrypted NNTP session from Thunderbird to my SSL NNTP server.  Outlook
doesn't exhibit this behavior in either native SSL or tunneled mode, and I don't
have any other platforms to test with.

Same problem

Tested with Mozilla 1.7.3 on Linux, Windows 98 and Windows XP

If I disable ssl posting works fine...

Tested again with 1.8 alpha and with build 20041115, no changes

If you go offline the article gets posted but mozilla complaints about no
messages sent via SMTP
