    I've never tried this, however others have claimed to be able to do
this by simple renaming the aliases, renaming the list directories and
archive names, and then setting the name correctly in the
configuration.  I'd say backup that list before you start fiddling with
it. :)

W | I haven't lost my mind; it's backed up on tape somewhere.
