Thanks, Graham.   Pleased to hear that it works with Jaws.  It used to do with 
Hal, but  I 
suspect that IE7 is the reason why it has stopped doing so.   I have a demo of 
W-E on this 
system and must  try how it behaves with this rather odd link/button.   

I fail to see why when Google decided to offer the basic view as an alternative 
they could 
not have given us a Settings link which opened the appropriate dialogue as well 
as those for 
In Box, Sent Mail etc.
