But who joins new into the same Mailing list we want to send them, messages from the first one and onwards how can we do that? As the new subscribers are only receives the current messages they will find meaning less content. I hope I can get some solutions for this.

Right. But you could do one of the following:
1. Put the info in the Welcome message
2. Put links to the messages you want new folks to read in the Welcome message
3. Put the stuff you want new members to read on a web page, and provide a link to that.
