Unfortunately this doesn't work either.

C-u C-c C-c still tries to post via the primary server. But C-0 C-c
C-c asks for a posting method: I can say (with completion)
"foreign.server (nntp)" but then I get

,----
| Sending news via foreign.server using nntp...
| 441 posting failed 
| Couldn't send message via news: 441 posting failed 
`----

The old thread I found at google suggests that Gnus understands
"nntp+foreign.server:foreign.group" in the field "Newsgroup:". But I
don't know enough lisp to see where the function "gnus-post-method" is
called to look *how* it is called (there's a variable
"gnus-post-method" too; that doesn't make live easier for a lisp
novice).

Thanks for all tips anyway!
