Sorry about replying to my own earlier posting, but I have received no 
replies/comments on the first of my two problems (quoted below) ...

Some additional info (I'm counting on your having read the above before 

Here's what the top of my summary buffer looks like (slightly edited):

 Gnus -- 200685  
   [  0   6]   1: advice    
   [ 90 941]  66: gwt  
   [ 67 337]  11: minix3    
   [  0   0] 200471:  
   ... ... ...

Note the last line!  It appears to be a "subgroup" of Archive (there is, of 
course, a `to' subdir under `Archive').

Can I just "gnus-group-delete-group" that "group"?  I certainly do *not* want 
to lose all my archived, outgoing articles/letters.  So, I am proceeding 
cautiously.  ;-)

Ideas?  Thanks for any help/comments that you might provide,
