DESCRIPTION

Inews reads an article from either each of the specified files in turn or standard input, adds the required and specified header lines and passed it to rnews(8) with the -q option.

If any header line is specifed as a command line argument then the command line contents override that read from the input. If any of the header lines that are required by RFC 1036 are then missing they are added with default content.

If the content From header line is overridden either from standard input with the -h option or with the -f option and the posting user is not the news user then a Sender header line is added.
