Hmmm. Other details - I'm not accessing a news service. The OE client is
POP access to my GMail account. Recently turned off the deletion of mail in
GMail and have been checking through the web interface. Contents of GMail
and OE are the same.
But this is no longer Boost related. Will continue the hunt.
