not as such.

naturally; just feed the article to inews.  (and if you don't have an inews
on your system, well, you'd need it.)

Don't know with slrn, but you can use other programs. If you have
direct access to your news server, you can try inews or injnews. If
not, you can use 'rpost', for example (part of the 'suck' distribution
available at http://www.sucknews.org/). This program will let you post
in the command line like 'rpost < article', being 'article' a plain
text file with the article (including headers). Rpost will then try to
post the article to the server your $NNTPSERVER variable points to.

Regards.

It would be even easier with Leafnode.  Just have a cronjob run
'fetchnews' at the right time.

I would have the same problem (I have mine running in a loop in my
ifup-ppp0.local...). Assuming then that you don't want to take it out of
the cronjob, I'd look into something like rpost or nntpsend.

1. slrn, leafnode & 'from:' header oddness

I'm using slrn to post to localhost which is running leafnode which connects
to news.ntlworld.com via an ntlworld dialup account. My from: address is

my username on my local computer is sammy and the hostname for the local
computer is osyd, so I can see a rationale for some of this addy, but the
rest is a mystery!

anone think they can shed some light on this?

Cheers & God bless
