I'm a new guy too. Got brave and posted something a few days ago
then saw it disappear off to previous screen (I only show 50
messages at a time - I thought of a 2nd stupid question).

Q1. Can I set preferences or something so that I can see stuff
chronologically rather than by thread. By thread is useful but if
the thread started a week ago it and all its responses are on
previous pages ?

Q2. the reason I only look at 50 messages/headers is that it
takes a long time to download them and they download oldest
first, i.e. the ones I've already seen. So I have to wait for all
the old ones to download before I get the new messages (of course
subject to the threading treatment of chronology). Can I set
preferences to download the newest first (ideally unthreaded) ?

Have you chosen only to show unread? You still get the whole
thread if something new has been added but it does cut down
somewhat on the number of messages.
