email -> news   works
news -> email   works except the newspost does not get posted to the news

the mail sent from the news group is handed off to majordomo correctly.
but when the majordomo sends back the email to the newsgroup, it is rejected
for being a duplicate!

i have spent maybe 5 to 6 hours on this and do not have an answer yet.  i
have tried 2 different ways to do this interface - neither worked.  it may
be a majordomo issue.

right now, you can use your news reader to read the lists, just post to the
list using email.  eventually we will solve the problem.
