Replying with and without original message Was: TandemCenter

Hi Dave,

Now that you have the option checked to include the original message in replies, you can easily not include the original message when desired by doing the following:

Immediately after you press Control R to do a reply, press Control A to select what is there and then press the Delete key. Doing this will select the original message and then delete it.

I do this whenever it is unnecessary to include the original message in a reply.

   Hope this helps,

   Don

Hello Yardbird:

I checked the box you suggested.

The reason I unchecked the box was that on another list, a list member is
sending his posts as a digest.

As you can imagine, when a digest gets quite long, the message takes some
time to load after you have pressed ENTER to open the message.

I wish there was a toggle key command to uncheck the box and back again to
take account of those people who send replies to the list in digest form.

Ah!  You cannot have everything now, can you!

Thank you for help.

It is very much appreciated.

Sincerely:

Dave durber

Hi Dave,

I can help with one of these in the way you're hoping. Just open the
Tools/Options dialogues. Now control tab to the page entitled Send. Now
tab
down just a few items and you'll come to the line "include previous
message"
or something like that, with a check box. I'd have to guess the box won't
be
checked. Space bar to check it, Insert 8 say line to be sure it's
checked,then tab to OK to finish. Send yourself and email, then reply to
that, and see if it's working right now. Ought to be.

As for the maximizing thing, you're right to believe that this has nothing
to do with whether the application launches maximized or not. A message,
either incoming or one you're creating, open originally in a window that
isn't the full size of the screen, but just occupies a portion of the
interface at first. This may allow for reading an incoming message with
Jaws
just fine, as it does for me, but although you can allow a new message
you're writing to remain reduced size while you first type, and even while spell checking, if you want to navigate around your message to edit it and
have everything appear and be accessible to you, you have to max the
window.

And this is done, in both cases, by just pressing control shift x. Now,
someone may have some other approach to all this, but I never heard of it
and it's not an "issue" for me in any case. Takes a flash of pressing alt
spacebar x and usually hearing "maximized," and that's that. I do it a
million times a day, without regret or wishing it would be automatic. it's
not supposed to be automatic. A sighted user wouldn't see this as a
problem
at all, so there isn't a way to set it differently. But for Jaws to focus
properly, you have to max the window, but it's no hassle.

Hope this helps.

Hello Yardbird:

If I had to do that, like you, it would drive me mad.

I have looked through the settings in Outlook Express.  I cannot seem to
be
able to find the setting you are suggesting I change.

Can you do me a favor and suggest what I can do to return OE to its
original
state.

You also might be able to help me solve another problem which I have
already
mentioned on the list.

For the past month or so, When I write a new message or reply to a
message,
that someone has posted, the window is always minimized.  Prior to that,
these windows were maximized.

I cannot remember what I did to cause these two windows to be always
minimized.

I have to maximize the window in these two windows in order for me to read
the entire lines of text I have written.

How can I set the new message window and reply message window to be always
maximized.

Outlook Express seems to be the only program that is affected in this way.

As I use programs, I am checking to make sure that the programs are
maximized.  So far, I have not found a program I use is showing that any
of
the windows within these programs are minimized by default.

Even if they are, as soon as I maximize the program's window, it stays
that
way!

Someone on the list suggested I use a program, I think it was called
Maximizer.
I do not want to use a program to perform this function unless I really
have
to do so.

I hope you can help with these two problems.

Thanks in anticipation.

Sincerely:

Dave Durber
