Christopher - you are a genius!  I just tried it and it works!   I am guessing 
that when you start an account it is set at US English by default.  But when I 
started in April 2006 One of the first things I did was change it to English 
UK and for that reason have not been able to use Settings from Basic View.

I  can now a bandon my search for a route to contact Googlmail Support. 
Incidentally I noticed in the Help files that if you are using a non-supported 
browser it automatically opens in Basic view anyway.   So I thought that 
surely the Settings dialogues must be accessible in Basic View otherwise 
such people would have no way of changing anything.

Your "conversion" to Googlemail has benefited me personally as it has 
resulted in a solution to this long running mystery.
