Setting up Support newsgroups/mailing lists with SurgeNews

We decided to setup our own company support groups in SurgeNews, Here's what we had to do...

Now I modified the config settings:

Because these groups are not just local but carried on google etc we chose to set the hide domain settings so people can post without getting spammed. In addition we want people to be able to join the groups via email, and post responses via email, so we add these settings. Also we had to create this domain '' and point the mx record at this host.

g_hide_domain ""
g_webnews_tomail "true"

On the mail server we added a rule so incoming news would get routed to the news server on port 6025:

Lastly since this system had windows firewalling turned on we had to enable the ports we wanted.

You can see the results here:
