[Mailman-Users] News headers in mails gated from news

Hello mailman users,

I am using mailman script called from cron /usr/lib/mailman/cron/gate_news
to synchronize mails between our company private only news server  (INN) and
our company mailing list.

When mail is gated from news to mailing list - news: header is not removed,
mailing list headers are added.

Unfortunately this scenario causes problem with users using great most
perfect in the world client Microsoft Outlook 2007, or Windows Mail :).

When employee click on "reply to all" Outlook will found "news:" header
inside mail and will try to add as one of recipient newsgroup where mail
originally comes from.
This is unwanted scenario as those users do not have news server configured.

Thanks in advance!
