That's where judicious snipping of previous emails and replying directly underneath the points your addressing is ideal. Top-posting = bad and goes against the way you read (and sorry, while I do read every email in a topic I'm following, I don't remember what was said from one day to the next). Bottom-posting isn't much better, but it follows the NORMAL flow of reading. Email is just like any other text-based communication. Last time I'm posting on the subject. Lets go help some folks. -- PIT
