In OE, all you have to do is right-click on the newsgroup name,
choose "Properties -> Local File -> Reset".
That will purge your cache file, and reset the pointers so all
message headers will be re-downloaded.
You should also do an occasional Delete and then Compact
on your cache files to keep OE working efficiently (Especially if
you download Binaries, the cache files can get HUGE ;)
