The inews program is used by some news programs (for example, inn and
trn) to post Usenet news articles to local news servers.  Inews reads an
article from a file or standard input, adds headers, performs some
consistency checks and then sends the article to the local news server
specified in the inn.conf file.
Install inews if you need a program for posting Usenet articles to local
news servers.
