I've used trn for many years.  A year or so ago, when I updated my
operating system from freeBSD 2.1.5 to freeBSD 3.4 and consequent
updates of some other software suchas leafnode+, I found that I
could no longer post.  I've forgottent the details now but it had
something to do with trn complaining that it could not find inews
as I recall.  At the time, I enquired about it and someone from the
trn crew suggested that I update to trn 4.0 which I did.  That did
solve that problem but there is an idiosyncracy that has been
annoying me ever since.

If I mail someone--either forward a post to them or [Rr]eply to a
post, trn goes away for quite a long time.  My only internet
connection is via ppp and dialup to my ISP.

When I try to do this, it triggers dialup to my ISP.  Does trn not
use the same MUA that I do?  Is there a way to tell it to?  Another
(possible) symptom is that if I try to forward a post to someone,
trn seems to be ignorant of the various mail aliases that I've
defined.  It's arguable which "feature" is more annoying.

Quite likely the problem is something that I have misconfigured but
I don't know what and any suggestions will be gratefully received.

Thank you.
