Yes.   You can fill the Control: header as described


No need for a special Subject: .   In  Sylpheed  one
can do this via:

     Account preferences (for NNTP) -> Send ->
     Add user-defined header

Normal  newsreaders can issue cancel requests at the
strike of a key.

Note that not all servers respect  Cancel  requests,
although  AIOE  and ES do.  For more details, see my
topic "Cancelling a message" on

()  ascii ribbon campaign - against html e-mail
/\  www.asciiribbon.org   - against proprietary attachments
