As a side note and/or personal advice, ensure that your folders are emptied
/periodically/. If this occurs every time you shut down the client, it can
become annoying, depending on the volume of messages you have stores. KNode
handles this quite wisely and give you control over it. I don't use
Thunderbird as a newsgroup client (only mail), but I am sure it will have
appropriate knobs to tinker with purging behaviour.

Best wishes,
