I had not thought about the separate news server.  Though I don't 
completely understand why you can't test on the same news server.

(Refer to my last email.)

If you will let me know what you want installed for your test bed, I'll 
set something up.  I can also provide email addresses for testing if you 
don't care about the domain that they are at.  Just let me know.
