Bingo. That worked. Thankyou thankyou thankyou.
Since this is the 2nd x in a week that this has happened, together with the fact that that email sent itself 5x and would have continued to send it until I noticed, any idea what I can do to keep that from happening again?
And my other questions still apply --
Two questions about OE: 1. Will uninstalling then reinstalling preserve the existing messages (and perhaps fix the problem)? and 2. Where to get OE6 so I can reinstall it?
If I go to Thunderbird instead, how can I disable OE to preserve my messages but have TB receive the messages from my AOL & ISP's email accounts? ?
Can I copy all my messages (I have thousands of them) to TB or do I just preserve OE and use it to archive the messages I have there?
