Question 3.5

Gnus doesn't show all groups / Gnus says I'm not allowed to post on this server as well as I am, what's that?

Answer

Some providers allow restricted anonymous access and full access only after authorization. To make Gnus send authinfo to those servers append

     force yes

to the line for those servers in ~/.authinfo.
