I got the feed ! It works. Thank you very much. Actually, I got it 
earlier but didn't realised.

I created the mailboxes, ran nntpd and it worked.

How would the groups be named without unixhierarchysep ?

Also, it seems that everybody can post from my server - how to disallow 
access for posting and more generally to manage posting or reading ?

I've managed /etc/news with:
default                 xfer            no
according to but not 
sure it works and it'd be enough.

How to manage access (posting/reading) on port 119 ?

Is /usr/lib/cyrus-imapd/nntpd -f enough ?

Also, it seems that ANNOTATEMORE is used to delete messages with 
cyr_expire, isn't it ? Need to read more about it.

I thank you very much for your help.
