If you are a Mailman list admin or site admin, see the documentation of
the NNTP_* settings in Defaults.pt and see the Mail<->News gateways

If you are not a list or site admin and are just asking about the
gateway in general, Mailman supports gating messages in either or both
directions between a Mailman list and a Usenet group. The gateway from
the list to Usenet can also be configured to interact appropriately
with moderated groups.

There are some limitations. Different lists cann gateway to/from
different news servers, but if authentication is required they must
all authenticate with the same user/password as that is a global
