Standard Usenet Message Format
The Usenet Message Format is specified in RFC1036 and is based on the Internet Mail message format. Messages consist of headers and a body.
RFC1036 describes the use, form, and purpose of required headers....
...and optional headers:
RFC1036 as a single document at: http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/htbin/rfc/rfc1036.html
Also, there is a work in progress which is a successor of RFC1036 which incorporates MIME.
Tim Pierce wrote software to do RFC1036 compliance checking on the "from" header available as a shell archive.
