I setup a news account with an ISP and then I changed ISPs.
The original setup used a server with the first ISP and I just changed that for
the new ISP.
When it is downloading messages it displays "" which is the directory
name it created based on the first server name.
It should display "" since I changed the server or the account name.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a news account with one ISP.
2. Change the server name in the properties for that account.

Actual Results:  
It displays the original server name that the account was created with.

Expected Results:  
It should display the new server name or the account name.
