I have got mailman to post the mail->news messages but any messages that 
are sent to the newsgroup do not get posted to the mailing list.

The cron job returns this message...

Subject: Cron <mailman at gloria> /usr/bin/python -S

Traceback (innermost last):
   File "/home/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 222, in ?
   File "/home/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 203, in main
   File "/home/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 148, in process_lists
     conn, first, last = open_newsgroup(mlist)
   File "/home/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 78, in open_newsgroup
     r,c,f,l,n = conn.group(mlist.linked_newsgroup)
   File "/home/mailman/Mailman/pythonlib/nntplib.py", line 260, in group
     resp = self.shortcmd('GROUP ' + name)
   File "/home/mailman/Mailman/pythonlib/nntplib.py", line 210, in shortcmd
     return self.getresp()
   File "/home/mailman/Mailman/pythonlib/nntplib.py", line 184, in getresp
     raise NNTPTemporaryError(resp)
Mailman.pythonlib.nntplib.NNTPTemporaryError: 411 No such group flt.acm

But I know for a fact that the newsgroup works, and plus mail->news *is* 
working fine.  What can be wrong with the news->mail part?

The newsgroup has no user restrictions.
