	I saw that.  Sad, but true.

	That should work fine.  Another alternative would be to switch 
hosting providers, and use one that does support the mail-to-news 
gateway.  If you're interested in considering that alternative, see

	INN should work fine.  For running small USENET news servers, INN 
is one of the best solutions I know of.  If you want a big and 
highly-scalable server, I'd recommend looking at Diablo.  But either 
should work fine.

	I'm sorry we weren't able to help you get a better solution.  ;(
