Hi List:

When I am in the addressbook, pressing alt+b on a name does not do anything
for me. Pressing alt+t on a name just bring's up the tools menu. Also, how
do I get out of the addressbook after I have selected the list of names I
want and pressing alt+b? I just close it with alt+f4 or Is this correct or
should I be doing something else?

Please tell me what I'm doing wrong!

Wayne
