What you are experiencing is a bug in your particular version of the
news software.  You took the correct action of editing the address as
above but, when the software is working correctly, you should have
your followup automatically addressed to the correct newsgroup.  If
you see "bionet.followup" in your mail header when composing your
followup to a message, you need to get a patch for the program.  Eliot
Lear is on vacation this week, but I'll ask him to post something
about this when he gets back.  He can also be reached at
lear at genbank.bio.net.
