I compared the sources of two messages.Â

For the From field,
In Salvo sender is indicated as isudana@xxxxxxxxx (Isuru Udana)Â
In thunderbird sender is indicated asÂIsuru Udana <isudana@xxxxxxxxx>

Can this be the issue here ?

It seems to be a issue in ÂSalvo. According to the NNTP Protocol, T/B packet is the correct one [3]. See examples in 6.3.1.3 section.
