       fetchnews - retrieve new articles from peer and feed to Cyrus

                 [ -a authname [ -p password ] ] peername


       Fetchnews  retrieves  news  articles  from  a  peer  news server and feeds them to a Cyrus
       server.  Fetchnews connects to the peer specified by peername, requests new articles since
       the time stored in tstampfile and feeds them to servername.

       Fetchnews  reads  its configuration options out of the imapd.conf(5) file unless specified
       otherwise by -C.

              marks for each group and use them to fetch new articles.
