Does the Exchange News server support mode stream?

A. No, Exchange 5.5 does NOT support MODE STREAM. The next major release (ie Platinum) will support MODE STREAM.

MODE STREAM is used by a peer to indicate to the server that it would like to suspend the lock step conversational nature of NNTP and send commands in streams. This command should be used before TAKETHIS and CHECK.
