Feisty & Evo 2.10.1

When subscribing to a new nntp newsgroup, for example news.gmane.org +
gmane.linux.ubuntu.user Evolution seems to download very single message
for the group on the server. This obviously takes forever when
subscribing to a new group.

Is there any way that when you subscribe to a new group to limit the
number of headers/msgs downloaded to, say 500 or 1000 in the same way
that you can in Thunderbird or SeaMonkey?

Why not continue to use Thunderbird or SeaMonkey to read gmane.org list
groups you might ask... well T/S do not have the ability to filter on
headers. Evolution does (albeit buggy at this stage but at least it give
the option). So I'm trying to setup my NNTP accounts on Evo & any
help/tips regarding doing this is much appreciated.


P.S. And if any of you know the solution to
[MASTER: [Feisty] Evolution always tries to print A4]
on Feisty (other than printing to PDF first) *please* let me know :-)
