Are you reading the support.cvsgui newsgroup at news.cvsnt.org, or are you
reading that group at a different server, or are you receiving the list

This list exist both as newsgroup and as email list. I'm talking about the
support.cvsgui newsgroup at news.cvsnt.org.

It seems there is a problem with that news server, as both Bo and Glen have
the same problem. What is the other server that is still working? Or is the
news interface generally flaky and using the email lists is recommended?

No. As I said, I read the list though the news interface, not through
email. What you saw is an email verification request on this address. I
don't receive list /emails/. (I can, of course, if the newsgroup is
officially dead -- but I thought I'd let the news server admin know that
there is a problem. Either the group should be dead, then it should
probably be taken out of the server's groups list. Or it should be alive,
then it should work.)
