If you do not have any peers, then certainly posts will not go
anywhere.  (Are other people's posts arriving on your server?  If so,
how do they get there?)

If you are running a small server and expect INN to connect to your ISP's
news server to download posts and upload your replies, you will need a
separate package such as 'suck' or 'newsx'.  You might want to ask in the
newsgroup for help with those packages.
