    Registered just to share this info I found after searching for a while myself. In short.. use stunnel

    http://www.giganews.com/faq.html#q7.4

    For the sake of archival, here's what you do.
    With all that done add a new service section:
    Code:
    [nntp]
    accept = 119
    connect = news.YourSSLNewsHost.com:563
    choose "start service" option in menu and stunnel should be set. Now just edit the address in your news client to use 127.0.0.1 and voila you have ssl connections from any news server. This worked for powerpost and it works with xnews.
