You can use the formail command to resend all the mail in an mbox.
# To resend the mail in a spool to a users new adress:
formail -Y -s /usr/sbin/sendmail user at new.address \
In your case you could create a temporary list that pipes mail out to
the news group you want and then run this into that list.
Good Luck - Jon Carnes
