Good afternoon too everyone, 


I’d like to thank those of you who took the time out of your busy day, too answer my question regarding the message that I sent to the list about my Delta airlines question.  I sincerely hope, that my question didn’t generate what they call now-a-days,

To much information.  I tried to send my Delta airlines problem,   and copy my Delta question exactly as it was sent too me.  I hope that my question didn’t cause any controversy, as this not my intent.

You may not have looked at it, but you almost certainly got the message that started the topic, Question about converting table view into a text view.

Gmail scans all incoming messages, whether you've opened them or not, when these features are enabled and behaves accordingly.  I must admit that the probability of receiving something that triggered that sort of automatic event creation "by accident" is virtually zero.  This was an exception condition triggered by someone doing what I frequently beg people to do:  providing an actual example of what they're talking about.  This message would have been indistinguishable from the one sent to the original questioner as far as Gmail's scanning algorithm is concerned.
