 'News' on the AIX RS6000 platforms ???

 Has anyone ported cnews to the RS6000 Unix platforms so that it gets around
 the 4k default page size ?

    Unfortunately, the 4k page size is a filesystem and virtual memory
    manager decision and there is nothing that cnews can do to change
    it ... it works very well with some data and not so well with others.
    MH mail files and cnews files are two applications that it works
    poorly with.

1. 'replying' from a mail/news program in AIX

Hello all,

I've been trying to solve this problem from various angles: if my
route to the internet is via a uucp smarthost, how do I configure my
sendmail.cf file to be able to be able to use 'reply'? If a message

to that article/mail message, the mail always fails with

The reason why it bounces is because I normally have to address

format. (uucp smarthost).

Could someone please help me resolve this. It's a REAL pain to not have the
ability to 'reply' to mail messages. I can't be the only RS/6000 administrator
that has this problem. Then again... ;)
