traces of anything to with *news* only in in the News folder in profile

I am asking a question. I've quit giving support for Mac SeaMonkey.
Because I've told one too many time to shove it, Mac support is
unwelcome nor desired.
Question: I've had this problem from time to time but its years since
I have had the problem:
In my list of news Servers there is one that get regenerated called
news and email address is shown as User invalid. I've tried to figure
out what components in the Pref.js file to to delete. I've tried
figuring out using both a text editor or the built in config editor.
And I tried going to account wizard and killing the account named News.
I am using SM 1.1.14 but I've had this on going problem from time to
tie every since the first version of Mozilla came out.
You would think after about 10 years some one would come up with a way
to prevent this from happening.
I'd like to fix. all it is annoying but. with My age and patience. I
can't abide annoyances.
Once this question is answered; I'll get off the list and leave it to
the PC only crowd.
Try highlighting in 'Account Setting' then hit 'Remove Account'. Close
SM open'Profiles' and remove folder. This works for me on the occasions
the same has happened.
There is something Preference.js file that supposed to generate the new
item but it supposed to have nothing in it and allow for you to put in a
sever name then and only then is it supposed to show up.
