A solution that I like even better is to download Pegasus Mail and
use it instead. I've found it to be a very functional program for
e-mail. I like the way that it's formatted and the ease of working
with it. I believe that it's available at www.download.com. The
32-bit version has a file size of 3.3MB and is freeware. Give it a
try and you'll find an excellent mail program that isn't M$ driven.
