If you have the source of the messages as received from the list, you
can inject them one at a time into the 'news' queue with bin/inject.

You need the message as received from the list, or you need to add an

X-BeenThere: listname at example.com

header to the message you inject, or cron/gate_news will post it back
to the list.
