  OIC. Well, as long as I can get (new) Pan to hang on to messages, then I 
shall have a copy of mine in there, and I would not need a 'spare' copy.

  That's what I prefer.

   Does (new) Pan warn if the cache is approaching full?

  OIC. Hadn't realised that..

 Absolutely! Many thanks indeed.

    It would seem so, and I will give it another try.

    But first I need to check on its handling of multiple servers.  Does new 
Pan still fetch automatically from all servers defined (for subscribed 
   That would be a problem for me, as although I routinely fetch from 3 
servers, I have two or three others in reserve for temporary use on the 
occasions when a regular server is down, and I would not want fetches from 
the reserve servers to be done routinely...
