Does anybody know a maillist to (local) NNTP gateway software? Some maillist systems like Mailman provide to interface the maillist they manage with (a) NNTP (system). This of course can be configured by the Maillist adminiastrator only.

Personally I prefer newsgroups and NNTP clients over maillists and mailclients when it comes to discussing things. Of course all the better MUAs provide threading support for maillists, but still you're dealing with email.

So what I'm looking for is some software that either passively recieves or actively pulls mail from maillist email account and places them in (local) NNTP newsgroups on a local server, or maybe even has that server built in. In a similar fashion, postings to such newsgroups shall be turned into mails to the respective maillist.

Is there such kind of program or do I have to implement this myself?
