I'm not sure this ever got a response... I think this was asking about how
to get the messages that you had in innfeed.dropped files to get
propagated out to your peers now that you've fixed your innfeed
configuration.  For the record, INN comes with a Perl script called
procbatch that will process files like an innfeed dropped article file and
create batch files that it can drop into the innfeed directory, and which
innfeed will pick up and process after a bit.
