Install Mailman, create a list whose members are the addresses you want
to email newsgroup posts to and for that list set:

nntp_host -> your news server (localhost?)
linked_newsgroup -> the name of the newsgroup to gateway from
gateway_to_news - > No
gateway_to_mail -> Yes

and make sure cron is running Mailman's cron/gate_news.
