It is also being blown completely away in terms of user usefulness by 
anywhere from 20 to 500+ messages a day from the robot.  That crap needs to 
go to the devel list, so the users can actually find a human generated 
message someplace in all the noise.

It would be nice if that option was available from the RMB click on the 
foldername in the folder list, but 1.13.5 as supplied by 10.04.4 LTS is 
bereft of such an item.  ISTR it used to be there a couple years ago, but 
is not now.

The web page I found while googling for the problem, advises to use the 
toolbar folder pulldown to access the mailing list settings.  I had also 
tried that several times but all actions were ghosted.

Unfortunately, I had to make sure I was in the folder, reading a message 
about 8 or 9 times before it would un-ghost any of its functions.  Once I 
had managed to get the chew positioned right, I could click on the 
'autofind" button, it, because there were 600 messages in the folder from 
the old server, found the old server, but it would then allow me to hand 
edit that line and reset it to the new server.  And now it works.  Without 
executing the autofind function, manual entry in that same text box was 
disabled.  I should have been able to enter it at any time, but this is 
old, so theres not much use filing a bug...

Let me know when they turn off that robot in the users list and I'll re-
