6.1.2 Server Commands

v
The key v is reserved for users. You can bind it to some command or better use it as a prefix key.
a
Add a new server (gnus-server-add-server).
e
Edit a server (gnus-server-edit-server).
S
Show the definition of a server (gnus-server-show-server).
SPACE
Browse the current server (gnus-server-read-server).
q
Return to the group buffer (gnus-server-exit).
k
Kill the current server (gnus-server-kill-server).
y
Yank the previously killed server (gnus-server-yank-server).
c
Copy the current server (gnus-server-copy-server).
l
List all servers (gnus-server-list-servers).
s
Request that the server scan its sources for new articles (gnus-server-scan-server). This is mainly sensible with mail servers.
g
Request that the server regenerate all its data structures (gnus-server-regenerate-server). This can be useful if you have a mail back end that has gotten out of sync.
z
Compact all groups in the server under point (gnus-server-compact-server). Currently implemented only in nnml (see Mail Spool). This removes gaps between article numbers, hence getting a correct total article count.

Some more commands for closing, disabling, and re-opening servers are listed in Unavailable Servers.
