You'll be glad you asked!

Gnus can do this for you.

Check this one out:

(Info-goto-node "(gnus)Mail Group Commands")

In particular:

`B r'
     Respool the mail article (`gnus-summary-respool-article').
     `gnus-summary-respool-default-method' will be used as the default
     select method when respooling.  This variable is `nil' by default,
     which means that the current group select method will be used
     instead.  Marks will be preserved if GNUS-PRESERVE-MARKS is
     non-`nil' (which is the default).
