I mean using as incoming/outgoing server "news.gmane.org:119" but no

use any news client (i.e., Thunderbird), create a new "News" account

Yes, I have TB set up that way. But I see that in the header that you
sent the message from gmail, so how did you address it, not to
firstname.lastname@example.org, but to Gmane's NNTP server, how?
I send the messages to "gmane.linux.debian.user" (Gmane group for this
mailing list). Then, Gmane performs its magic and transforms it into the
real mailing list "To:" address (debian-user[at]lists.debian.org).
I still take it that you send from gmail.
But "gmane.linux.debian.user" is an incomplete address!
