Which existing software has this capability?

I see that news deliver will send notification of usenet posts via e-mail, but is there software which will e-mail the actual usenet posts? Something along the lines of gmane, but in reverse.

Possibly GNU mailman has this feature, but now I'm wondering whether Leafnode might also have that capability.

Cyrus has the ability to export Usenet via IMAP and/or export shared IMAP mailboxes via NNTP. This is made possible by a new NNTP daemon which is included with Cyrus.
