> What is the name of the newsgroup this Pan list is on?

First, go to and read all about it.  Then point pan
(and/or OE, which I see you are using as well...) at
as the server.  The group is gmane.comp.gnome.apps.pan.user.  Note
that the first time you post to the group, you'll get a reply from
gmane to your mailing address, asking for confirmation.  After you
confirm, it'll forward the post to the mailing list, and you can
post from then on.  If you prefer the news interface to the mail
interface, you can then set your subscription on the listserv (not
gmane, but the listserv to which you now subscribe) to "vacation"
mode, which will keep you subscribed to the list so you can post,
but will quit sending the actual mails to your address so you don't
have to deal with them there, as well.

I follow both the pan-devel and user groups thru gmane, as well as
my other lists, mostly gentoo lists, but others as well.  Note that
for each list, you'll have to go thru a separate gmane
authorization, but it's only one-time, after which you can post
without issue.  If the list itself is a "closed" list that you have
to subscribe to, to post (very common, due to the spammers
otherwise), you will of course have to subscribe if you haven't
already, then set it to vacation mode or whatever, for each one,
but that of course is entirely separate from the gmane side of

You'll also occasionally see references to the gmane list2web
gateway, along with the list2news gateway I'm posting thru.  This
can be handy for providing links to specific messages or threads on
a mailing list gmane carries.  I often see links to lkml (Linux
Kernel Mailing List) discussions as carried on gmane's web
interface, for instance.

Thank you Duncan. I will stay subbed to the mail list. Most of you here seem to be running OS's other than windows and talking about things I have no clue about but every once in awhile I learn something.

Thanks again.
