Mail message format is described in RFC 5322, while news article
format is described in RFC 5536.

They're deliberately fairly similar, but it is just wrong to assert
that you can turn one into the other without using a gateway that
deals with the differences.   I've written such gateways (indeed, I
read this list via a gateway that turns it into a local newsgroup)
and there's a lot of little nits they have to deal with.

R's,
John
