Hm, isn't it more like "innfeed needs the kick of an *outgoing* article
(or several)"? If it isn't sending anything, there doesn't seem to be
any point in adding more files to not send from. I haven't checked the
code in recent times, but I seem to remember that innfeed only looked
for hand-prepared files when it had finished a .input file (which makes
sense to me).
