Gary, Thanks so much for posting these links! Whether or not those who post email from sub-par MUAs like Outlook and OE will take heed and make use of these very useful fixes remains to be seen. What I find comical about this topic (and it never ceases to recur every few months) is that the clueless who post, asking for clue, refuse to accept pointers on something so simple as email etiquette from the same people they assume will provide clue on so many other more complex issues! I am not an ass-kisser of any sort, but I can tell you that I have learned a lot from reading Greg's site about email posting, and listening to his (and other's) logic in the matter. In the end, why not just write like you speak? In a verbal conversation, each party speaks in turn (in-line replies), provided they have something worthwhile to say on the given subject (trimming what isn't relevant), otherwise they keep their pie-hole shut (don't reply at all). Most of us read and write English from left to right, top to bottom, so why is it so much to ask to follow the same guidelines that are followed with verbal speech? Using a poor MUA isn't an excuse, certainly not after this very useful post by Gary! For those on high, please forgive my entrance into this thread. -- Mike perl -e 'print unpack("u","88V]N=&%C=\"!I;F9O(&EN(&AE861E<G,*");'
