"list-ids" removes headers you have stored in your MSF file, that are no longer on the server. The result is that expired/removed messages are no longer in the list of newsgroup messages. Anything else is kept in tact.

Removing the MSF removes all headers you have stored, including their flags, tags, watch status, except for read/unread status.
