I've problems to post to a subscribed group of a foreign server.

I open a new posting buffer, in the header "Newsgroup:" i write (with
completion) "" and press C-c
C-c. Gnus doesn't recognize the foreign server but tries to send the
posting to the primary server. So I get the message:

| 441 No valid newsgroups in "" 
| Couldn't send message via news: 441 No valid newsgroups in 

I've found a thread about a similar problem:

In short it says:

| Works wonderfully. (nntp "news")

They're talking about the function "gnus-post-method" and the argument
"1" or "nil". With nil it works.

But I'm not a Gnus hacker, even not a lisp hacker. So what do I have
to do to post to a foreign server?
