The firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list and the lugnet.robotics
newsgroup are now linked via a two-way mail-to-news/news-to-mail gateway.
So, anything posted to lugnet.robotics will show up on lego-robotics and
vice-versa. (Except MIME messages and binaries, which won't show up in
Here's how the link was accomplished:
Russel Nelson asked his email@example.com mailing list server to add
firstname.lastname@example.org as a list-member. This sent out a confirmation
message to email@example.com, which I replied to, and then the
lego-robotics server sent the message below (mostly snipped). I then added
firstname.lastname@example.org to the outgoing e-mail distribution list for
lugnet.robotics and asked the lugnet.com mail-to-news gateway to specially
convert anything coming from email@example.com so that all the names
would pass automatically without making all the lego-robotics mailing list
subscribers go through the lugnet.com News Posting Setup process. Outgoing
messages from firstname.lastname@example.org are also converted specially so
that they won't bounce when received by email@example.com.
