Mail posting in newsgroups

I read the mailing lists I am subscribed to as newsgroups through Gmane.
Lately, I've been having problems with posting through Gmane --- posts
don't reach the mailing list for several hours, first postings to a list
don't trigger an auto-authorization message from Gmane, etc.
So, I am wondering if it is possible to post articles and followups in
Gmane newsgroups by email. For example, if I am in the summary buffer
of the gmane.emacs.orgmode group, and hit `a', I'd like Gnus to start
composing a mail message to emacs-orgmode <at> gnu.org. Similarly, if I am
in the summary buffer of that group and hit "F", I'd like Gnus to start
composing a *mail* reply to the selected article, with
emacs-orgmode <at> gnu.org as the "To" address. Is there a way to do this?
I was reading about group parameters in the manual. Will setting
to-address and to-list parameters of the gmane.emacs.orgmode group to
emacs-orgmode <at> gnu.org do what I've described above? Unfortunately, I
can't test it without spamming the mailing list with test messages.
