Two thoughts, first you can just set up a dummy feed of the message-id
and/or token in newsfeeds. Rename the file, flush the feed, and then the
digester (digestifier?) can pull the articles.

Also, The newsgroup comp.risks is digested, if you can't search software
you like that moderator might be a starting point.
