It sounds like your Outlook isn’t set up properly. This message came through just fine, but the fact it wants to open it up in windows Mail tells me whoever actually set up Outlook only did part of the job. This would also explain why I never received your email.

I am replying to this thread only because I have been having trouble posting directly to the list using MS Outlook, though I have joined it. So, just as a test, I have clicked on the e-mail address for the group seen in some of the posts. When I do that, I am sent to Windows Mail, not Outlook, which is my mail client. I can read the mail from the group in Outlook. So, I am wondering if it is not possible to actually send a post to this group using Outlook? I did e-mail the list moderator with no response.
I agree with Richard, when I read messages I delete them when I read the message and if another person replies a day later referring to something but he does not have the thread in his message I found it is often unclear what this refers to. I guess in such a case I just also delete he message since I may not be able torespond not knowing the context, but while a long thread may not be always useful it doesn’t bother me since the new reply is at the top (if it isn’t then that is not my problem) so I don’t have to read the entire thread, but if I do want to refer back to something then I can or if I look for a link that was in a message 5 replies further down the thread then it is easy to find..
I think keeping the subject line clear and specific will help a lot, even if it needs to be changed/updated to fit a new thread from the original. Just my opinion.
Thank you...i feel the same way how can we help if we do not know what your

This is my Pet Peeve for the month:
Those of you, and there are several so I'm not pointing out anyone in
particular, on this list who have there email set to not quote the previous
message make it very difficult for those of us who want to help. If you do
not explain the context of your message, it often leaves me scratching my
head wondering what the heck the person is replying to.
So, please consider summarizing the answer you are replying to so we might
be able to offer a different suggestion, or set your email program to
include the prior message.
Just my thoughts. I often want to assist, but have no idea what the issue
is, so I simply delete the message.
