Better yet, use the formail utility from the procmail package to split
the mbox file and feed the result to a mail2news script.

My mail2news script is at http://patrick.vande-walle.eu/upload/mail2news.pl

It will correctly parse MIME-formatted messages, including attachments.
There are some hard-coded paths in the Perl files, so adjust accordingly.

You then only need something like:

formail -s /path/to/mail2news.pl your.newsgroup < /you/mbox/file


Hope this helps,
