But did you use gmane to post this response?
Yep, and also "this" (look into e-mail header) :-)
I send the message to Gmane NNTP servers and they re-inject it into
Debian mailing list (it's a "mail to news/news to mail" gateway).
I don't know why news servers where dropped in favour of mailing lists,
they are still great and very convenient when following several groups.
I am looking at your reply with TB and "looking into e-mail header" is
not an option it appears.
Select the message I sent and then hit "Ctrl+U" for displaying full e-
mail headers in Thunderbird ;-)
Thanks... did not know that.
When you say, you "sent" it to Gmane NNTP servers, what do you mean? You
sent it how? I meant by "using Gmane", using a browser to access  and
then use their 'post' function.
I mean using as incoming/outgoing server "news.gmane.org:119" but no
browser needed (although posting via http is also available), you can use
any news client (i.e., Thunderbird), create a new "News" account and
configure Gmane as news server (with the above mentioned host name and
port), choose the group you want to follow and get/post messages as
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?
