Error: 430 - No Such Article

The "430 - No Such Article" error
A "430 - No Such Article" error is a message from the news server, not from the NewsLeecher software application itself. It means the articles you are trying to download are not available on the news server.

This can be due to multiple reasons but the common causes are :
• Trying to download an article that is older than the retention of the server
• The article hasn't been propagated to that server from the posting server yet
• The articles have been removed from the servers per a DMCA ( copyright infringement ) take down request. (See this thread for an example)

If you are using SuperSearch to locate the posts, please be aware that the SuperSearch index is collected from multiple backend feeds. It is possible that the articles are available on a different server than what you are using (#2 above). However, in recent months, the articles are removed due to DMCA removal requests so the headers pointing to these articles are no longer valid. At this time, it is not possible to remove the headers from the SuperSearch index for these missing articles.

What can be done ?
NewsLeecher Version 6.0 ( and newer ) features a service called SuperLeech that allows one to setup NewsLeecher to automatically download the articles of interest, as soon as they get posted to the Usenet and thereby circumvents the "430 - No Such Article" problem. So, we highly recommend that you check out the SuperLeech service inside NewsLeecher, if you experience the "430 - No Such Article" problem.
