The newsspool option is deprecated and not needed.
Have you created the "Usenet.comp.mail.imap" mailbox on your "news"
partition (/var/spool/imap/news) and given at least the "anonymous" user
the "p" right? You probably want to grant your newsgroups "anyone lrsp".
Have you told your news provider to send you articles?
Do you have a local NNTP client that can access your Cyrus server and
LIST newsgroups and POST articles (you can do this with nntptest if you
know how to use NNTP manually)? If not, you need to fix this before
worrying about accepting articles from the outside.
