The problem is that if this is a reader server, they are in overview as
well as history. And if these are usenet groups instead of local groups
you will create followups to incorrect groups by attempting to regroup.
The easiest way is to write a tiny script to read each article, change
the Newsgroups and Message-ID lines, and resubmit it as a new post. Then
after you confirm that this "worked" as well as this endeavor ever does,
you can delete the old copies with ctlinnd (not by hand, please).
In general this is more work and less successful than you would expect.
