You can use bin/withlist to manipulate the list attribute
usenet_watermark. Set it to a number 1 less than the number of the
first article you want from the news server or to None if you just
want to 'catch up' without retrieving articles or to 0 if you want to
retrieve all articles on the news server.

For example

bin/withlist -l <list_name>

and at the >>> prompt

>>> m.usenet_watermark = 5


>>> m.usenet_watermark = None

and then

>>> m.Save()

and then a control-D to exit.
