Wow, good responses. And here I was ready to write my very own super-duper
mail2news script with neat cross posting support. :) I've looked at cistron
already and it does some things I personally think may be the root of all
evil (like Message-id: mangling) but it looks very nice. I'll take a look at
mailpost from CURRENT as well.

Thanks for all the help!
