Unfortunately no.

G p buffer shows nil.  I found that the ~/Mail/active file had this

  inbox 1 1 y

and fixed it setting the first ‘1‘ to the number of posts in that group,
then I got my emails back in the summary buffer.  But it keeps
forgetting my ticks when I fetch new mail.  They are absent from the
relevant sexp in the ~/.newsrc.eld file.
