At least 2.0b8 doesn't do that. 
_Each_ posted message stays in out.going
after the first posting, even if the remote server replies 
with "240". In addition it is linked to the failed.posting 
directory, although the msg is already at the remote server. 
  It is removed from out.going at the next posting attempt,
because that msg-id is already in use.

How is the status of postings to moderated groups? 
I heard rumours it is not working.
