Forgive my inability to answer that at this point, I haven't studied the
Cyrus NNTP support documentation yet. Here is what I like to do:
(A) mirror about a dozen newsgroups from news.west.cox.net (my ISP,
(B) mirror about a dozen newsgroups from news.microsoft.com (public NNTP
(C) mirror six newsgroups from news.easysw.com (public NNTP server)
(D) mirror about ten newsgroups from news.infragistics.com (public NNTP
I read _and_ post to most of these groups. No single group comes from
more than one place, though, each group has only a single server that I
will use to get and post messages for that group.
I don't know that if that answers your questions or not... but I suspect
this sort of arrangement will be a common usage of Cyrus' NNTP support
(for those places that don't arrange for feeds). In fact, if you want to
use any of these non-Usenet groups that corporations/etc. provide,
you'll never get a feed and have to use reader mode.
