Ifmail is not "tossing" to any "format". Ifmail is not a tosser, it is
a gateway. Tosser needs functionality (namely feeding the links) that
deliberatly was not implemented since there are packages that can do it
better (cnews and INN).

There are a few, but none working I know of. Although, try to look
into Fidogate package, it was announced to contain a tosser. See the
link at ifmail homepage.
