Restore news posts?

I have a user who is complaining that posts to his list pre 1/27/2003 just
vanished the other day. It coincides with an improper shutdown of inn
last week. I have ran makehistory, which found some missing articles, but
not the ones in this particular newsgroup. All posts since 1/27 are just
fine . . .
I've looked at the news buffer, and sure enough the articles are gone. I
do have a backup of the news buffer with the articles, but how can I
import them without getting rid of the new articles?
Also, out of desperation, I have tried to post the recovered articles with
'mailpost' but I get the error (I have the text of the posts):
441 435 Duplicate (Article not posted.)
This leads me to believe that perhaps the article is there, just 'lost'
somehow. Any suggestions?
Thanks for your help, I'm new at this ;).
