I don't use OE at all. I use Outlook, which does the same thing as you explain of OE6. I think the virus filter used by your ISP is your angel in disguise. I'm very careful with my machine, probably moreso than most, because I make my living from this box. I can't afford to lose out to a stupid virus. (I say this and think to myself how stupid I am that I have a brand new hdd and unopened copy of Norton Ghost sitting on my shelf, waiting on me to back up my system, but I haven't done it yet for some reason) Speaking of Ghost and backups, what do you know about Ghost?
