Well, I'm not so sure. Earlier today one area was showing me 155 new
messagses. When I went in to the area it was sitting on one that was on
friday, about 48 hours ago. I got caught up, left the area, and was at
the end of it when a few minutes ago some more mail came in, at which point
it was showing me 160 new messages, also pointing at friday, though I
couldn't say for sure if it was the same spot or not.
This is something else, I think. Something to do with nfs settings,
