        Because the Gnus  tutorial I visited and the  part of the Gnus
manual  I  got  through (it's  so  big  that  I'm still  trying)  kept
providing caveats that Gnus is not  a typical mail reader, that is the
strentgh of Gnus, and changing that  will be an uphill battle at best.
One of the features they harped  on is expiration.  It seemed to imply
it.  Because of this I wanted to make *sure* I wasn't about to lose my
email after a week or something. 

Thanks for all of your help,

Dan
