Thanks Donna,
I had assumed that might be the problem.  Thanks, too, for the details.  I
finally figured out how to eliminate the preview pane in Outlook Express
which allows me to delete a file without opening it.  Today I deleted one
from an aol address I didn't recognize and had no subject.  I mention this
because I know a few people who seem to prefer to never put anything in a
subject line.  This may be fine for friends whose e-adrs you know, but I
still think it is friendlier to include something, no matter how simple,
that gives the recipient a clue.  The item I deleted may have been from one
of our MGs, but I don't take a chance.

Also, I opened my Norton Anti-virus plan to run a full system scan today.  I
figured it had been quite a while, but also since I have the instant update
every week, I thought I was pretty safe.  Well, last time I did a full
system scan had been 501 days ago!  It took 45 minutes to run it today and
found no viruses, but I feel better knowing I did it.
