That makes me feel marginally better, Jim - knowing I'm not alone.  I
save what I want to my hard disk as text files, but that means I have
to read the message and do it.  When I get into major work mode - as
it seems I have been most of this summer - it only takes about 2
nights of not being able to read mail for me to get into major
trouble since I get over 200 messages a day...sigh.  I've had
backlogs before, but this was the worst - about 45megabytes of inbox
files.  Since my old program doesn't automatically compact the
folder, I have to do it manually and always move the contents to
another folder before compacting; move them back afterward and delete
the temporary folder.  Well, being tired, I got sidetracked and
thought I'd moved them all back to the inbox and deleted the other
folder...whoopee!  Amazing how fast they can vanish.....
