To see if this isn't just another bug with the Windows integrated email client, I recommend that you install and test Mozilla Thunderbird. It imports your settings from OE and will also allow you to keep hold of your OE look and feel, for the most part.

If that works without a problem, then I suggest discarding the use of OE completely.

too tings

1.what is the dialogue from Kryten and Lister ?

2.How do Bill stay in Bidness , while Mozilla is on the loose ? The email works just fine and also have switched to Mozilla Browser , wife even likes it better.
Installed ROKU SoundBridge in ten minutes , works really sweet over my wireless router setup. Even the Win Media Connect download and install was a snap.
Really does a nice job playing .mp3 from hard drive through the air waves on my stereo- anyone need 26 feet of RCA connector cable?

Thanx for the advice on solving the problem

1. Lister and Kryten are two of the characters in the best sitcom in the world, Red Dwarf. I recommend buying the DVDs and watching, because this is frightfully funny stuff.

2. Bill stays in business due to misinformation and underhanded business practices. Too bad that most people don't see that. What's worse, other software houses cater for M$'s needs and therefore create the need for their bloated operating systems and other tools they make.

You're welcome, I'm glad I could help.
