Well Miguel, removing the password worked. TB! now opens as it had for all 
these years without having to enter that password. I don't understand why 
changing the password and then changing it back to what it was originally 
caused such behavior but here we are.

My sincere thanks to you and Adrian both for helping me.

The password in question is the one sent to me each month by RIT Labs. I'm
assuming everyone who uses TB! gets these same emails from RIT Labs monthly.
CTRL F12 will bring up the account password.

Now when I start TB! it opens with my account tree collapsed (it never used to

the password. Entering the password will cause the collapsed account tree to 
expand in all it's glory and everything is back to normal.

Access password

2022-01-07 Thread Jack S. LaRosa
Hello TBUDL'ers,

A few days ago I received an email from a very dear friend requesting an urgent
favor. She was in need of five gift cards ASAP and couldn't get them herself as
she was suffering from a sinus infection. She is the type of person who would
put herself in the position of needing presents for friends post haste. Her
request was not out of the ordinary. I immediately went to my local CVS pharmacy
and bought five Apple gift cards. Never having done this before I had no idea
how to get them to her. However, her instructions were to photograph the cards
and send her the photographs. Not a problem. I photographed each card separately
and emailed the photos to her by replying to her original request. A grievous
mistake as you'll see.

After a few hours I decided to call her to see if she had received the photos.
As soon as she realized what I had done, she freaked out and said she had been
hacked. Sure enough, when I looked at the sender's email address originally
requesting the cards, it wasn't hers. I had fallen for a spoof email and sent
negotiable photos worth $500 to bad actors.

I immediately called Apple and the agent checked and saw that the cards had not
been used yet so he was able to void all 5 cards. So the cards are no longer
good and cannot be used. Hooray for my side! But I was out $500 and further
checking with CVS Pharmacy and the credit card company (Visa) proved fruitless.
The money was gone and could not be reimbursed. I made a stupid mistake and it
cost me.

Because of this I decided to change the "access password" on my TB! account, not
necessarily out of fear that I might be in danger of hacking as well but more
because I hadn't changed that password in years. After changing the password I
realized I should have changed my email password instead of my TB! account
password. So I put my account password back to what it was originally and
changed my email password. Now every time I try to look at my mail, TB insists
that I enter my account password, after which, everything is displayed normally.
Anyone have any idea how I can get TB! to stop asking for my password every
time?

I all the years I've used TB! this has never happened. Of course in all those
years I've never changed my account password either.

Sometime later still licking my wounds I wondered how idiots like me could be
automatically protected from this type of crime. It occurred to me that if TB!
were to compare all incoming email addresses to my address book, those for which
there wasn't a match could be displayed in red. Agreed, most of them wouldn't
match and would be flagged in red but I wouldn't recognize or care about the
sender anyway. Those would be discarded by me as they always are. But if I did
recognize the sender and their address was displayed in red, I would know
immediately something was amiss. Had this feature been implemented I would have
seen that my friend's address was flagged which would have caused me to check it
and I would have seen that it was not my friend's real address.

If anyone knows how to get TB! to stop requiring my password every time I try to
view my mail I'd sure appreciate knowing the fix. And I'd like to know what you
think about automatically flagging unknown addresses.

TB! has recently started giving me these error messages as soon as I delete an

Anyone have and idea why this should be occurring?

I did not mean to imply that these features were new and unknown. On the

them for they no longer worked for me. Fortunately I managed to get them to work
again by performing the steps outlined in my previous email. How those features

So, as a last resort, I had to actually search for the answer for myself. What I

are able to see the attached photo you'll see that SPELL CHECKER is in the top
menu bar. Clicking on that option yields the context menu you see. Although
AUTOMATIC CHECKING seems to be selected, I clicked on one of the other options
and then back to AUTOMATIC CHECKING. From that point on (as you can see) the
spell checker started working. Also, right-clicking on a flagged word brings up
a context menu which includes the option to add the word to the dictionary.
Given that you and I are using widely separated versions of TB!, YMMV.

I have no idea why it stopped working to begin with but at this point I'm taking
what I can get.

That MAY have worked Stuart. Un-fortunately, I had a couple of conditions set in
the actual filter from previous tests, and in my haste to try your suggestion I
overlooked them. This caused many emails to get moved to the destination folder
that shouldn't have. I'll have to weed out those inadvertant moves and compare
the final count of emails to the count before the re-filter to see if it has
gone up.

I'll let you know.

Hello TBUDL'ers,

I have a folder which contains multiple unique emails from a particular group of
people. They were originally moved there manually. I wanted to create a filter
for the source folder to look for the characters in their email addresses which
appear before the @ sign, then move those emails to the aforementioned
destination folder. When I re-filtered the source folder, only about 39 of the
emails actually got moved. Many more which met the criteria specified in the
filter were never moved. I double and tripled checked for typing errors and
there were none.

I can't pinpoint the 39 that were moved because the destination folder had over
a hundred already-read emails and the emails that didn't get moved from the
source folder were also already-read.

I used the block option in the creation of the filter because there were so many
(about 128) addresses I wanted caught. In the re-filter options of the source
folder I chose incoming mail, read mail and replied messages all at once.

Anyone have any idea why the filter caught 39 of them and not any of the others?

I've found that if you start a new email and place your cursor in the TO field,
the little address book icon appears at the far right of the field. Clicking on
the icon will of course open your address book. Select a group (folder) and open
it. In the column of arrows the second one down is a double-right arrow. When
you click on that double-right arrow it will place the name of the group
(folder) in the box to the right. However, you'll see that if the group has two
names as in "The Group", it will reverse the names as "GroupThe". Take that into
consideration.

I tried it with a folder I have called MISC and it displayed it in the right box
as "Misc_handle " so you'll probably have to play around to get it to
display correctly.

Good luck.

Specific item display color

2021-02-13 Thread Jack S. LaRosa
Hello TBUDL'ers,

Since moving to the new laptop I notice that the color of the last selected
email (using WORKPLACE > WINDOW SPLIT MODE > FULL WIDTH PREVIEW PANE) is so pale
gray that it's barely discernable from the alternately colored email lines. 
This is
most apparent when moving from one folder to another and back. Is there a way to
change or eliminate those alternately tinted lines?

New computer

2021-02-10 Thread Jack S. LaRosa
Hello TBUDL'ers,

I went ahead and copied everything (I hope) related to TB from the old computer
and transferred all to the new laptop. Only two problems so far:

1: It's asking me to register my "evaluation copy" and it doesn't like the
keyblock I had recorded. So I've written an email to RIT Labs asking for help.
We'll see.

2: All my addresses in the address book are now showing in the PERSONAL ADDRESS
BOOK only. All the other folders show zero entries. Is there a way to get TB to
re-distribute them to their proper folders or do I have to manually
re-distribute them?

Much appreciation for any help.

Hello TBUDL'ers,

I have just bought a new computer and need to transfer everything from my old
desktop to the new laptop. Carbonite is taking care of all the files but I'm
going to have to re-install TB on the new laptop. As you can see I'm running
v6.0.12 and have been for quite a while. I checked my records and see that I
have a product key for v5. IIRC that v5 product key worked when I downloaded and
installed v6. My question is what is the latest version I can download and
install and still use the v5 product key?

It does help, Thanks. It seems I was confusing myself (easily done these days)
and didn't realize that the sig I was looking at in my previous reply to Maggie
was the sig which is in my TB reply template. If my cut mark really didn't
work, I would have seen two identical sigs.

I think I need someone to define the purpose of the cut mark because I thought
it was to automatically eliminate everything below the cut mark (including the
cut mark) when replying. When I clicked REPLY to this email Mike, your cut mark
and everything below it is visible.

For what it's worth, my editor is automatically set to Plain Text(MicroEd)
whenever I communicate with this list. Somewhere in the distant past it was
recommended to use Plain Text(MicroEd) for this list.

Hmmm, very interesting. When I reply to this (your) email, I'm replying with
your email quoted in the my reply. Your entire sig appears, cut mark, Warmest
regards etc. If I "select" (highlight) your cut mark, the highlight stops after
the two dashes. It does not stop after the trailing dash as you would expect
indicating that the trailing space is not there. This is what prompted me to
remark on it in the first place.

However, since this email also contains my original email to you, my sig is
displayed also which means mine didn't work either. If I try to select
(highlight) my cut mark. It will highlight the two dashes but not the trailing
space. Actually since my sig appears in the first place it would indicate that
my cut mark doesn't work also. And I *know* my cut mark is dash, dash, space.
It would seem that TB is stripping the trailing space on our cut marks thereby
rendering them inoperative. Or I've totally misconstrued the function of the cut
marks in the first place.

Bulk mailings

2021-01-20 Thread Jack S. LaRosa
Hello TBUDL'ers,

My wife's TB (same version as mine 6.0.12) seems to have developed a problem
with mass mailings (more than one recipient). I tried to send myself a message
from her computer using the protocol I learned from this group. Namely, address
the email to yourself (her) and put everyone else's in the BCC field. So, from
her TB I addressed the email as FROM (her) and in the BCC field I put my two
email addresses. When I press SEND the COMMUNICATION CENTER appears and shows
the message being sent. The log status bar at the bottom of the screen says that
1 message had been sent. However, I never got the email in one of the accounts.
When I look at the log contents, these lines are shown:

<1/20/2021, 10:09:28: SEND  - message to em...@address.net and others sent 
(1512 bytes)
!1/20/2021, 10:09:28: FETCH - Connection to host broken (last commands sent 
were: "DATA", "RSET")
1/20/2021, 10:09:28: SEND  - connection finished - 1 message(s) sent

What does "connection to host broken" mean and could that line explain why the
message was received in only one of my accounts and not both?

If so, where do I start looking for the problem?

Not sure if this will help because I'm using an older version of TB but if you
go to OPTIONS-PREFERENCES-EDITOR PREFERENCES, then in the box that appears is
"Wrap text at xx characters".

By the way, your cut-mark doesn't seem to be working. It seems to be lacking the

This won't be very helpful I'm afraid except misery loves company. I have
always had problems with searching my emails. As you stated above you get heaps
of results none of which have anything to do with the header entered. I get
those same results almost every time I search for something. It helps sometimes
to change the search target. Instead of HEADER you can try TEXT or ANY PART.
This works sometimes but not nearly often enough. Either we're doing something
wrong or it just doesn't work correctly.

BTW, apparently your cut mark doesn't work as you can see. It has to be dash
dash space. I think you're missing the trailing space.

Well, that eliminated the black on black body as you can see and it seems your
cutmark isn't working. I think the trailing space is missing.

Anyway, thanks.

I suspect it's me, particularly since no one else seems to have mentioned it but
your emails have started to come through as black on black text. Your cut mark
and the rest of your sig is pale gray on black. It's only if I click on REPLY
that I can see the body of your text (as above). My view mode is folder tree on
the left, email list on the right and email contents at the bottom (Full-width

Is it me?

TF Go to: Options / Preferences / Message List / Fonts.

TF Over here, it says Segoe UI, which is the orginal font set by Ritlabs.

When I follow your path I see that mine also shows Segoe UI and I learned that

Would that it were so. I never assigned a color group to anything in TB! so it's

One thing you might want to check is if there's some program that's hogging CPU
time. Move your cursor down into the task bar and right-click. Then click on
TASK MANAGER. When it comes up click on the header POWER USAGE to get the most
hungry app to the top. (My apologies if you're already familiar with this).

Microsoft automatically runs a program called "Anti Malware Service Executable"
(MsMpEng.exe). It's an anti-malware program which has lately (on my computer)
become VERY demanding of CPU time. I have begun to have constant problems with
this program freezing my computer until it releases the CPU. It has high 
priority
and cannot be made lower priority.

Just a thought.

JSL> Thanks M. I'll see what happens.

Here's the lore:

Attachments (inc screen-shots) are perfectly acceptable (although HTML
messages  are  frowned upon because they invariably double the size of
any simple message and our transmission facilities are provided FOC by
a generous host, on whose generosity I /know/ none of us would wish to
over-impose).

...HOWEVER...

There  are  limits  to the size of permitted attachments. 25k on TBUDL
and  75k  on TBBETA. If your screen-shot is small enough, attach it by
all  means.  You  can  even chance it. The worst that can happen is an
automated rejection from the Mailman server.


I hope that clarifies things.

TMP files

Hello TBUDL'ers,

I just noticed my wife's laptop HDD is almost full. I ran WinDerStat to get a
visual representation of the contents of her HDD. The results showed that at
least a quarter of the HDD space is taken up by .tmp files, all in TB's folders.
Can I simply select all of TB's .tmp files and delete them?

As you can see above, your entire sig is present in this reply. However, if I
place the cursor at the beginning of the dash-dash-space in your email above and
press END on my keyboard, the cursor goes only to the end of the last dash. If
there was a space there I would think the cursor would have stopped one space
beyond the last dash.

When I reply to the email I sent you on 1 Sep 2019, none of my original sig on
that email appears in the reply. Exactly the opposite of what you're
experiencing.

Hmmm, interesting. When I open a command window the first line says "Microsoft
Windows [Version 10.0.17134.950]". The only difference is the last three
numbers.

I changed my sig to match yours and you can see the result. The only odd thing I
see is your use of the "percent,dash" in two places without anything following
it. That apparently made the difference but I don't see how unless 
"percent,dash"
is just undocumented.

Anyway at least my sig now shows which version number I'm using.

Thanks once again M for helping me out.

Thanks for that Miguel but it seems that NOT SELECTING is the default. When I
choose to see the RFC-822 header information, my preview window suddenly has two
new tabs at the bottom, one named HEADERS and the other named TEXT. Clicking on
the HEADERS tab shows only the header information in the preview pane. I have to
click on TEXT to see the actual message preview.

However, thanks to your superior knowledge in the intricacies of all things TB!,
you have led me to the solution. To wit: ALL of the resulting hits in the search
were all sent as HTML files. Guess what my default browser is. That's right,
Chrome. All of the HTML files contain one or more instances of the string
"google" thereby meeting the search criteria.

So, many thanks Miguel. It would have taken me quite a while to suss this out
without your help.

If I set the search criteria to SENDER then I get only those messages where the

only 90 messages so that seems to validate what you're saying.

How would one go about de-selecting VIEW RFC-822 headers? It's most annoying the

Search function

2019-03-22 Thread Jack S. LaRosa
Hello TBUDL'ers,

The latest messages from MAU and Paul F. Siebern regarding TB! not being able to
access Gmail after March 31st reminded me that I too had received a message from
Google regarding March 31st. Only my message was to inform me of the following:

This is a reminder that on April 2, 2019 we’re shutting down consumer Google+
and will begin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts. Photos and
videos from Google+ in your Album Archive and your Google+ pages will also be
deleted.

However, I had to manually search through several different TRASH folders to
find the message. This is because when I tried to use TB!'s search function to
find messages which had the string "google" in it, it always returned many hits,
most of which, if not all, did not contain that string. I used the criteria "ANY
PART" or "TEXT" or "SENDER" assuming that that's where that string would be.

Although my message from Google did not mention TB!'s permission to fetch mail
from Google, The March 31st deadline was contained in the message.

That aside, does anyone know why the search function would return so many
invalid hits? Was I doing it incorrectly?

Unknown CA Certificate

2019-01-07 Thread Jack S. LaRosa
Hello TBUDL'ers,

Once again, for no apparent reason I've started getting "Unknown CA Certificate"
boxes whenever I fetch my Gmail. See
https://www.dropbox.com/s/84uvl064x9cfcej/2019-01-07%2010_18_49-Connection%20Center.png?dl=0
Nothing's changed (at least by me) so I'm at a loss to understand why this
should be occurring. If I go directly to Google from my browser and fetch my
Gmail, nothing out of the ordinary happens. I spent quite a while searching
through the archives and actually found posts by me regarding similar
occurrences but none to match this one exactly. As you can see the message box
gives no procedure to correct the error but only to continue. If I choose to
continue then my Gmail is fetched with no apparent problems.

Anyone have any idea as to why this is happening?

Thanks for any suggestions.

I find it a little disappointing that yours was the only response (for which I
am grateful BTW) to my query.

Since the original post it has happened again but this time I noticed that the
address book she *was* using was replaced by one named "Personal Address Book".
If you right-click on that name at the top of the address book tree and select
Properties it displays STORED IN FILE:

C:\Users\June\AppData\Roaming\The Bat!\TheBat.ABD

I believe that file is the original TB! address book which is of course empty
when TB! is first installed.

When she got her own computer I created separate address book files with her
email addresses only, excluding mine. I named those address books something
along the lines of "June's address" or just simply "June". I'm beginning to
suspect that for reasons unknown, TB! will, on it's own, revert back to the
original address book, TheBat.ABD regardless of which address book she happens
to be using.

With that in mind I used TB's address book window to copy all the addresses from
the self-made address books into the one called Personal Address Book which in
File Manager is called TheBat.ABD. I then deleted the other self-made address
books leaving only TheBat.ABD in C:\Users\June\AppData\Roaming\The Bat!\.

With the other address books no longer in existence I'm hoping the next time TB!
decides to teach me a lesson, it won't have non-native address books to deal
with. Time will tell.

Again, thanks for your response.

Wandering address book

2018-09-23 Thread Jack S. LaRosa
Hello TBUDL'ers,

My wife's laptop has developed a habit of (apparently) randomly switching
address books. This last time, when I looked in
C:\Users\June\AppData\Roaming\The Bat!, which is where I usually find the
address books, the one I was looking for wasn't there. I did a disk search for
.abd and found a folder here: C:\TB!ADBs which contained the address book for
which I was searching, and nothing else. Note the transposition of the D and B.

Should this folder even exist? And if so should it be located in the root
directory of the C drive? There's a very slight possibly that I might have
created this folder years ago but even if so, why would the (in use) address
book move into this folder and be replaced in TB! with one from
C:\Users\June\AppData\Roaming\The Bat!? She's running TB! v6.0.12. Where in this
version are the address books normally kept?

Additionally, any ideas as to why TB would change the current address book in
what appears to be a random fashion? She has no idea how to change the default
address book and no one else uses this computer except me and that's usually
only when something like this happens.

Many thanks for any insights.

Certificate warning

2018-05-17 Thread Jack S. LaRosa
Hello TBUDL'ers,

My wife has been getting these https://preview.tinyurl.com/y725jbda certificate
warnings which *seem* to be somehow connected to emails from The New York Times
newsletters. The problem is that you can't get past the warning. I almost always
have to use Task Manager to shut down TB because the warning just won't go away.
Sometimes even after shutting down TB with Task Manager, when TB is re-started,
the same thing immediately happens and I can't get past the warning. I got lucky
once and somehow managed (by clicking on "YES", "NO" or "VIEW CERTIFICATE") to
get past the warning and once again have access to TB and immediately deleted
all emails from The NYT. That seems to have cured the problem at least until the
next NYT newsletter. These emails do not come in daily so it's not something
easily reproduce-able.

I'm beginning to suspect that the warnings may be triggered by each NYT email
so even if I follow all the instructions for the warning on screen, others await
in any other NYT emails because it hasn't happened since I deleted ALL the NYT
emails from her inbox.

Any insights into how to handle this will be greatly appreciated.

Bounce-back messages

2018-03-29 Thread Jack S. LaRosa
Hello TBUDL'ers,

Suddenly I am getting bounce-back messages whenever I try to send to two
specific individuals. This problem started about 4 days ago. Prior to this time
I had always been able to send messages to these two without any problems. The
log message says:

!3/29/2018, 11:52:04: SEND - Message has not been sent. Server reply - 5.2.0
Tss01x00X3c7r7o01ss28E Message identified as SPAM - Please visit
http://www.charter.com/postmaster E5110.

However, if you click on the URL you get a 404 error.

I spoke with a Charter (now Spectrum) agent who said they have been having
problems with bounce-back messages and when I ask if she had any idea when it
might be resolved she didn't know but suggested I go to:
https://www.spectrum.net/support and ask them. After going there I got into a
"live chat" with a representative who, after some "troubleshooting" declared the
problem to be with TB. Mainly because I could send messages to these two
individuals if I did it from the Spectrum website directly.

Usually when you tell them you're using TB as an email client, which they've
never heard of, the problem suddenly becomes yours because of your email client.
Although as mentioned, I was able to send (from Spectrum's website) a message to
at least one of these individuals with no problem so I can see how he might have
jumped at the chance to blame an email client he never heard of.

For what it's worth I CAN send messages to at least one (I only tried one) of
these individuals as long as I do it from my Gmail account from within TB. It
would seem to me that if I can send from the Gmail account I should be able to
send from the Spectrum account. Additionally, my wife has gotten the same
bounce-back error message in the past when she tried to email one specific
individual.

I don't know where to go from here.

Well, mainly because I didn't know you could do that. When I looked at the
export options I saw that I could export as .csv files, and I knew I could
import those files into Excel and edit them from within Excel. That seemed to be
the way to go.

I tried what you suggested and of course it worked perfectly. Even where an
entry was duplicated in all three books, it only pasted the ones with distinct
email addresses. So it did the work for me.

My apologies for being so tardy in replying but this operation had several
"gotchas", mainly because I wasn't paying attention. It turned out to be an
invaluable lesson in how address books are managed in TB!.

M> Is there any possibility that you didn't delete the whole line when

M>

Although it's moot now, the answer to your question is no. When you select an
entire line in Excel, every cell on that line is selected all the way out to the
absolute last column in the spreadsheet, whether those cells contain data or
not. So by deleting that line, you delete everything that line may have
contained.

Once again, my sincere appreciation for your help.

Exporting/importing address books

2018-02-15 Thread Jack S. LaRosa
Hello TBUDL'ers,

Over the years I have somehow managed to create three address books. I wanted to
export them to a file I could edit and so chose to export all three to comma
separated (.csv) files. I then used the DOS COPY command to combine all three
into one .csv file. I could then double-click on the combined file and Excel
would launch and load the combined file. So far so good. I then edited (deleted
duplicate addresses) and saved the file.

When I imported the combined file back into a newly created (empty) address
book, I found that many entries at the top of the book were completely empty. As
I scrolled down, text began to appear in the NAME column but it was punctuation
marks followed further down by street addresses then ultimately by what appeared
to be legitimate entries. However, upon checking these entries I found that
information that should have been in an entry was in fact some of the
aforementioned punctuation and street addresses at the top of the book.

I tried saving the Excel file several different ways all to no avail.

What am I missing?

since I figured out the solution but not the problem. The solution was to click
on the "file" option at the top of the opened address book which I eventually
did in desperation. I was presented with a list of ABDs to click on, one of
which was JLF.ABD, her initials. Opening that ABD file restored her address book
to what it was. The question remains unanswered however as to how that address
book "JLF.ABD" got closed in the first place.

Thanks for the reply Brian.

I have very few complaints with TB! and have always received any help I needed
from The Bat Users Discussion List . I am not looking
to "bad mouth" TB! and have no desire to force them through humiliation to make
changes to TB! It's already a very powerful email client and as such has a
slightly steeper learning curve than other clients.

The next time you have any problems with TB! I would suggest shooting off an
email to the above address instead of tech support.

Message has not been sent

2018-01-26 Thread Jack S. LaRosa
Hello TBUDL'ers,

I was trying to forward an email and it kept getting denied, ostensibly by
Charter (my ISP). But when I click on the part of the denial that says:

Please visit http://www.charter.com/postmaster, I get a 404 error from Charter
(now Spectrum).

Below is the entire TB log message containing the above link.

!1/26/2018, 12:14:52: SEND  - Message has not been sent. Server reply - 5.2.0 
36Et1x00H3c7r7o016Etpr Message identified as SPAM - Please visit

 1/26/2018, 12:14:52: SEND  - Some messages were not sent - check the log for

So, who is preventing the transmission of this forward? It's worth noting that I
can send the forward using my Gmail account from within TB!.

Once again my thanks to you. With the above information I was able figure out
how some (not all) of this stuff works. Enough so that I was able to find and
delete the offending addresses.

Good to you and all the others on this list.

Autofill suggestions

2018-01-05 Thread Jack S. LaRosa
Hello TBUDL'ers,

When I start to type a name (lets say "John")into the TO field of a new message,
TB! will display a number of possibles, some of which have incorrect email
addresses. How do I get rid of these?

I have used the chevron at the end of the TO field (view history) and used the
down arrow to get the cursor into the history and deleted any instances of
"John" whose address was incorrect. I have gone into the AB (using the ABs
search function) and again deleted all instances of "John" where the address was
wrong, yet TB! still offers up some (not all) of the original list of possibles
whenever I type "John" in the TO field. So obviously I have succeeded in
removing *some* of the erroneous address entries, but not all. I don't know
where else to look.

Any ideas, suggestions?

Well, I followed the instructions laid out in Avast's "Troubleshooting email
client warnings about invalid server certificates" which remarkably matched what
I was seeing on screen but it still presents the warning when I do a Gmail
fetch.

Unfortunately, port numbers and TLS and STARTLS are beyond my scope of knowledge
right now but I do thank you for the help. For now I'll just continue to click
OK on the warning.

UPDATE - My apologies for replying to my own message but I just wanted to convey
that apparently the problem went away after I rebooted my computer. Avast wanted
to do an update when I opened the Avast control panel and so I let it. After the
update it wanted me to reboot the computer but I was right in the middle of the
original reply to MFPA's message so I postponed the reboot. My mistake. The
reboot apparently took care of the certificate problem.

So, once again M, thanks.

Well that explains why Edge was suddenly being used to display PDFs on my

The history of MS suggests it's NOT a bug but intentionally inserted into the

There's gotta be a monetary reason for that.
