Hello all,

I have seen a couple of times people not trying Sylpheed
because its being also a Usenet client is not readily
evident from the homepage.  They tried only upon my pointing
it out to them.  I propose to change its title to something

  a.  Sylphed -- a lightweight and user-friendly e-mail
      client and newsreader.

  b.  Sylphed -- a lightweight e-mail and Usenet client.

Then, they couldn't find NNTP in the New Account wizard and
I had to tell them it should be configured in:

           Configuration -> Edit Accounts -> Add.

which I think should also be fixed.

I personally find the New Account wizard absolutely
redundant because it only duplicates part of the
functionality of the more convenient Account Properties

()  ascii ribbon campaign - against html e-mail 
/\  www.asciiribbon.org   - against proprietary attachments
