There is no web interface to support it, but you can manually edit the lines
that create the NNTP objects in cron/gate_news and Mailman/GatewayManager.py
(or Mailman/Handlers/ToUsenet.py if you are using the CVS version) to
include the user and password:

  con= nntplib.NNTP(self.nntp_host, user="jim", password="password")
