Loaded and tested. It is looking good. One issue I noted: when trying to
change the last tab of the options (where the DCD value is) I get a
Nullointer error when I click on save. Running WinXP SP2.

I also have a question: how do you compose mail? I clicked on the "new"
button but I don't get any action (no pop-up window or anything).
