Yes.  You were right, that was the problem!  I also looked the fromusenet
file, and it did indicate that 
it was caught up with the message.    I am also starting getting messages
posted on my mailing list that is posted on the news group.

This is what it is supposed to do. Once you do a "catchup" there is no
reason to do another one.

Some clients will show you the message number on the message; the
command-line program "trn" will, for example.

You may want to work with your news server system administrator on this.
