  If you can't read the article, how can you "verify" that it is on the
server? And what message do you get when you try to read the article?
  HEAD <my-articles-msgid at>
  XXX this message is important to debug problems

  It's not clear if you mean the message is not in overview, or you
can't connect with nnrpd properly, or ??? If 
    grephistory <msgid>
returns a token, the id is in history, and if
    sm token-from-grephistory
lists the article to stdout the article is intact.

  Given that the article is there you probably have an overview problem.
