When I reply to a message via the newsgroup
gmane.music.equipment.slimdevices.general, the reply address is
"discuss-8kkgcvHRObwvDzVnOqYaopqQE7yCjDx5 (AT) public (DOT) gmane.org" this doesn't
seem to work, is that correct? A thread I replied to hasn't posted in 4
hrs.. This was done by "reply to the email" not posting to the newsgroup
itself, which didn't work in the past. If I reply to a discussion list via
email list, the reply to is "discuss (AT) lists (DOT) slimdevices.com".



What is the proper way to reply to the discussion list via, NG's? Whew..took
all that to spit it out. :)

You'll need to post from an e-mail address that is subscribed to the
list, so using news via gmane won't work. Just go ahead and send an
e-mail to Discuss (AT) lists (DOT) slimdevices.com

Using news via gmane *does* work because that's what I do. But of course
the email address you use in your news server account must be the email
address you used to subscribe to the list. I just subscribed to the list
and turned off message delivery and the gmane interface works great for me,
both for reading and for posting.
