Also, if you want to set the watermark to None to "catch up" and start
retrieving with the next post, you can use the _mass_catchup feature
on the Mail<->News gateways page rather than withlist. If you want to
set 0 or a specific message number, you still need to use withlist as
described in the prior post.
