NNTP GroupSearch returns no results

I am trying to search for messages with a particular subject using the GroupSearch method. I know that a message exists with the search pattern I am searching for, but the component never returns any results in the GroupSearch event.

This is most likely because most NNTP servers do not actually implement the XPAT command, which is the protocol level command that the GroupSearch method implements. Instead, the server will basically ignore the request, resulting in no GroupSearch events being fired.
