Hi Sharyn - I too had a problem with outlook express when I switched from
AOL. Not only the messages but also saving my files. I have stuck with
receiving messages as attachments.
one reason is my INBOX has only 3 or 4 messages a day from QR instead of
being piled full. I can open each message and deal with the attachments as
I feel like it deleting them directly if they don't apply.
I solved the other problem by using Microsoft Outlook instead of OE.
Howev er, I think its all personal whatever you get used to or find the most
useful for your own methods that you use. Cheers Joyce Crete

as many as 20-25.(Presumably one for each individual message?)

Outlook Express shows the DIGEST messages as "attachments" because
that's how it interprets the Rootsweb coding. The only way to change that
is to subscribe in LIST mode.
No virus found in this outgoing message.
