Dear Russell, -  your advice is appreciable, - is it also pertinent to
--Outlook Express (OE)-- ? this is supposed to be an improved one and not so
prone to certain malaises 'Outlook' has.
I have no company restrictions, only my inapt ignorance how to (mis?)handle
my software <G> so I am scared to touch it (change server).
(I never attended any courses in computers, do it 'try and err' and err I
do. I have an idiosyncratic aversion against manuals, -  IMO they are lousy
translations by Japanese computers into US English from German.)

However: do you have some 'favorites' for the "X" you wrote?

John M
