The last matching entry in control.ctl applies, so putting this at the top
only catches control messages that don't match anything else.  You have to
actually change the action on all of the control message rules to either
be :mail or :doit=mail if you want to get mail about everything.

Please note that that's a substantial amount of mail.

tradspool currently has a problem where if a newsgroup is rmgrouped, it
doesn't clean up the old messages.  Could that be what you're seeing?
