Thanks for the clarification! I was sleepy when I replied and somehow missed the important yet subtle detail. I do know the differences of Outlook and OE. I regularly have to read email formatted [or should I say "unformatted"?] by Outlook 2003 for my $realjob and I've used both Outlook and OE in the past. I just felt it was a bit funny to find a message in support of Outlook that exhibited exactly the sort of malformed output that Outlook is known for. What I wrote wasn't meant to be an offense to JJB who's one of the regular posters and *does* contribute a lot to helping others :-) _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
