I'm not familiar with tin.  Perhaps a post to the newsgroup 
news.software.readers would get you some advice; just mention tin in the 
Subject: to get the attention of those who do know that program.

A simple bash (or whatever) script to append all the files in Leafnode's
out.going directory to an mbox file (in another directory) before running
fetchnews, would get the job done for all articles posted by all users of
your Leafnode.

The documentation for sn says that it can be used to make a newsgroup out 
of a mailing list.  In principle, I think a bash (or whatever) script could
be devised to create a newsgroup spool out of incoming emails, but my
scripting skills aren't up to that (yet) and I don't know if Leafnode 
would accept such a directory as an active newsgroup for serving to 
clients.  I have toyed with the idea of using sn alongside Leafnode, just 
for mailig lists.
