This seems to be that Gnus sent the posting to foreign.server but
that server didn't like your posting.  I guess Gnus can't do anything
about that :-(

Can you find the " *server foo*" buffer corresponding to this server
to see what is sent to the server?  Note that the buffer name starts
with a space, and thus the buffer is not listed in most buffer
menus.  Use C-x b to switch to this buffer.

Whee.  Understands.  Hm.  I think that perhaps Gnus should understand
that notation.  But currently, completion pretends that the notation
works, whereas in reality it doesn't.  This is my fault.
