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 the -h option is given the input is assumed to be in the form of
header, blank line then body. If not then it is all treated as the
article body. 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.
-h Read header lines from the input as well as the article body.
The following options are used to add header lines:
rnews(8), qnews(8), nntpd(8)
