[Mailman-Users] From UseNet Is Not Working

Thanks for the inputs.

I went to the Mailman and tried to select 'yes' on -> Should Mailman perform
a catchup on the newsgroup?, but Mailman automatically puts it back to 'no'.
Does anyone also have this problem?  Is there I can overwrite this in
Mailman code?

How do you find message numbers on the Usenet server?  I didn't see message
numbers listed in the Usenet server?

Any inputs is appreciated.

What are the message numbers on the Usenet server? This looks to me like the
"watermark" (the last message number that mailman went and got) is higher
than the current message numbers. Is it possible that the message numbers
got reset somewhow?

You might try telling it to play "catchup". This may reset the watermark to
the current highest, allowing subsequent messages to get picked up by
