    in the last item there is a thread:
    Where are all the groups, then?

In the *Group* buffer, do `A A'.  It sounds like you need to read a Gnus
tutorial.

Poster's names and subject lines, right?  Often I do that just to find
answers to questions I have asked and forgotten the answers to.
Sometimes I use the two to find the name of a poster that I remember
saying a certain something.  And it's just a great way to browse
archives from the application that I live in---everything else bugs me,
including browsers, but when in Rome ...

    thank you sean and michael for explaining the benefits. i'll keep at it.

You're welcome.  Sorry I cannot be of more help; Gnus is pretty big and
I use it for such a comparatively small purpose.  It does so much and
what I have it do for me is so narrow but so perfect.
