I posted that in another thread and replied later when I discovered
the problem.  It appears that I had somehow put gnus-agent in offline
mode, so it worked once I realized that and put it back online.

How do you sync the mailboxes together?  That sounds like something
that could be useful for my configuration.  Actually I am trying to
move my old mail from Linux to FreeBSD, but syncing might be an easier
way to handle moving it.
