INN send _articles_, an article crossposted to,
will be sent to a feed that you sent, even if he doesn't
If your ifmail's Areas file has a translation line for too,
then two FTN message will be generated, for two echoareas.
A patch by M.Schaeffer exist that allow having diferent Areas file for each
site (and a default one), then by defining on those files only
those groups he really receive you avoid the problem.

Another possibility is to use INN 1.5.1 and the "@" exclusion.
Note that the result is different (more exclusive) than the precedent solution.

But is it defined in the Areas file ? Or do you have a default line in
the Areas file (one whith "*" in the newsgroup side)

Other than that problem, what are your difficulties ?
