[guispeak] Puzzling behaviour!

                Hi all,

Can any of you suggest a reason for behaviour I am experiencing when
reading messages on this, and other mail-lists, I subscribe to?

Some messages will read perfectly normally  whereas others remain silent
as I arrow down the page, line by line.  With these messages, if I use
'control plus end' to go to the end of the message and then arrow up
through the message it will read all the text the message contains, only
back-to-front as it were!

I am using the Turnpike v6.05 mail client, with text wrapping enabled.
It is set to handle plain text and I would know if the problem messages
were in HTML format because there would be a duplicate of the plain text
message lodged in the list.  Turnpike uses the Windows Explorer
interface and should perform transparently within the Windows

The only more-or-less consistent feature of this problem is that all the
messages that do not read properly have been generated using the MS
Outlook Express 6.0 mail client.  That does not mean to say that all
messages generated, using this particular mail client, are problematic;
very occasionally one will arrive that does read properly.

If anyone can suggest what might be happening or, better still, a
solution to this annoying behaviour I'd be extremely grateful!

Thanks in hope...
