only I don't see any such articles actually in the list.
You have it backwards. Mass catchup means ignore all messages currently on the news server and start gatwaying to the list with the next news message to arrive.
If you wanted to gateway all the existing news server messages to the list, you should not have done a mass catchup and if everything was configured OK, the messages would have been gated to the list the first time cron/gate_news ran.
Ok, the messages are there now. I don't know why it was such a struggle to setup for me, in retrospect that's not too bad.
thanks for the help :)
