Oh, you're using

  access: "Read Post"

in readers.conf, aren't you?  Read about the access parameter in the
readers.conf manpage, and you'll see that it overrides allownewnews in
inn.conf.  You have to do one of two things:

- delete the "access:" line from readers.conf ("Read Post" is the default)
- change "access: RP" to "access: RPN"

I recommend the first one.
