Re: JAWS 8 Update & O E Issue Remains

Hi,  I had a forced switch from Qwest DSL to MSN and this does use Hot Mail. 
If this affects JAWS somehow, how can it be fixed?

  Sorry I'm late on this thread- had to check it out thoroughly.  Yes, I still 
get double messages unless I close and re-open OE.  I'm on hotmail for that 
account and have thought it was somehow related to that, so is your account in 
question a web-based transfer into OE?

  Hi Jane,  Again the behavior is inconsistent.  For example, with the In Box, 
  I generally get notice of the number of messages being downloaded and the 
  status line is correct most of the time.  Conversely the number of messages 
  reported in the Bulk Mail folder is often incorrect.
  From a cold start after downloading messages, JAWS will show, for example, 
  that there are 40 messages when there are actually only 20 and it reads each 
  message twice.  If I then close O E and open it again, it will then 
  correctly show the actual 20 messages.
  Like you, it does not say bottom of window.
  And to be clear, these issues were never present with 7.0 and 7.1 and I have 
  made no changes to my system that I am aware of over the transition. Mitch

  I have not had your particular problem with e-mail in Outlook express, but
  what I do note since JAWS 8.0 and 8.1 is that JAWS does not read bottom of
  window at end of e-mail list. Likewise, JAWS does no longer read the number
  of messages. Do you note this also?
