A nntpproxy has been added to nymproxy. This allows you to send usenet
postings using your favorite newsreader.
The way it works is simple: all commands to read messages are sent
transparently to your newserver. When you wish to post a message the proxy
intercepts it, formats it as a nym message and mails it to the mail2news
gateway of your choice.
The latest version of nymproxy (0.2) may be downloaded from:

nymproxy is a set of tools for using mixmaster remailers. It
provides pseudonym support to a variety of mail programs via sendmail

At the moment the software includes:
- - a sendmail wrappper
- - a utility to download nym messages from a POP3 server
- - a smtp proxy
- - a nntp proxy
A pop3 proxy is being developed now. Functions to create and maintain nyms
will be added. Possible future development includes a web-based client.

Nice work. I really like this thing.
I have a suggestion, however. Instead of having a seperate command for
starting the smtp and nntp proxies, how about something like "proxy
server" that starts all the proxies at once? I guess you'd need to
spawn a thread for each one. That way you can start and stop the entire
thing with one command.
