   Why does the postman put letters through my letter box when I'm not in
the house?  Shouldn't the post office keep all of my mail until I'm
available to read it.  Of course not.  One of many reasons is space.  And
my email box is no different.  Although I can see where your coming from.

   I suppose there is no reason to "download" it.  But there is no reason
not to either.  There is no real anwser either way, I was just highlighting
that if you do as I do and you get an error you don't know what the error
applies to.
