INN + suck + posting

Hey all,

I've got INN and suck working, I'm getting articles from my ISPs news 
server, that all works great.

The problem arises with posting, I've told suck to ignore certain local 
newsgroups (local.* being one), the others I'd like suck to rpost 
articles back for. However, when I post, I get the post back, but it 
never gets to the remote server.

My /var/spool/news/outgoing/<servername> file has a load of message IDs, 
I assume these are articles waiting to be posted out?

On my posts locally the headers show the path being 'not-for-mail', is 
this a reference to the news2mail gateway, or something else?

I google'd to find some answers, but couldn't discover any useful 
documentation about suck/INN/rpost.

Thanks in advance,
