I use that a lot, as a function of getting a few high-traffic mailing
lists through NNTP gateways (for example, linux-kernel list). Naturally,
_any_ reply to those has to be made through e-mail.

BTW, for such use, Pan's facility to forward by e-mail is utterly unusable.
When you select "Forward by e-mail", Pan QUOTES the article instead
of forwarding it unchanged. Naturally, any patches in the mail get
broken by this action.

I have a workaround for this, in the shape of the following script:

address@hidden ~]$ cat /usr/local/bin/pan-mail
exec /usr/sbin/sendmail -G "$USER"
address@hidden ~]$

This works like a charm to preserve original headers and the body of
the message.
