Sounds like the server has a problem with re-indexing. I know it did 
have an issue with XOVER for more recent dates and hence I had to turn 
that off.

If it turns out 2018-10-07 refers to some 'special' number in 32-bit 
seconds since 1970 (or close to one) then it's likely an internal issue. 
If it doesn't then I'll have to dig further.

If it turns out I can't fix it I'll have to change to another NNTP 
server (and that assumes I can find a way to get the missing messages 
imported).

The message spool files are basically large text blobs so are readble 
and I know I've had to do that once before maybe 20 years ago. But 
that's a last resort as the spam filtering the server uses is a script 
custom-written for the current server. If e.g. INN supports spam filters 
I expect there will be a way to get it ported.
