Rasmus, Well, if ever I had leverage for asking Earthlink to fix the problem, I think it would be now. Forwarding an email from the person credited with starting the scripting language that they are using for their system that basically illustrates their recklessness should do the job. At least I would hope so. By the way, thanks for getting PHP going. I love having an alternative to ASP.
