I don't know what system you're using, but you could check
out the man pages for 'inews'. inews is an NNTP tool that
handles all protocols (using port 119) for sending/receiving
news.

On the other hand: maybe your newsreader supports command-
line interfaces; dunno, check your manuals ...

Note that news is _not_ mail anymore, i.e. news is not
piggypacked on SMTP anymore ...

kind regards,
