Re: An Outlook Express Jaws 8 issue-- one among many peculiarities

LOL. Sure I have, Bruce. But a repair didn't change any of a whole laundry 
list of bad stuff this version is doing. It's really awful. You know what 
fixes it up perfectly? Unloading Jaws 8 and launching Jaws 7! But that's not 
quite tohe solution I'm hoping for.

Arghh.
prefectly?
