> While working with a client program I used the 1.6-SNAPSHOT (built locally) and noticed
a problem where the message ID was not correctly identified to the NNTP server I was communicating
> When recieved in the message processor, the < and > are stripped off and the "meat"
of the id are stored.  When performing a "STAT" call, the < and > are not restored resulting
in a news server error.
> Referencing the NTTP RFC 3977 ( Section 3.6 it states
the following regarding message IDs
> {quote}
>    Each article MUST have a unique message-id; two articles offered by
>    an NNTP server MUST NOT have the same message-id.  For the purposes
>    of this specification, message-ids are opaque strings that MUST meet
>    the following requirements:
>    o  A message-id MUST begin with "<", end with ">", and MUST NOT
>       contain the latter except at the end.
>    o  A message-id MUST be between 3 and 250 octets in length.
>    o  A message-id MUST NOT contain octets other than printable US-ASCII
>       characters.
> {quote}
> As this states, the < and > are required.  There are  two ways this can be accomplished,
1, store the message ID with the < and > in NNTPGroupFolder or change all calls using
the message ID to encapsulate with < and >.
