    New Year Greetings from Outlook Express.

    OE destroyed or mislaid all my mail on the stroke of midnight last night. [1/1/2007]

    My 'In Box' was emptied, and I didn't even have to ask. The 2,000-odd messages were such a clutter, after all.

    And to think, I only pay Bill Gates a tiny inconsequential amount for this service. Oh.... It's a rude to be sarcastic. After all, it's my own fault. Perhaps I looked at the computer the wrong way... and a test message sent to myself after midnight is in sitting nicely in my In Box... so why am I complaining? All my addresses are still available too...

    sigh

    A Mac would never do this to you...

    Gates is a filthy bastard.

    I don't blame BG.

    Apple would likely have problems if most hackers and crooks targeted it.

    Probably so - but Macs also do not have the built-in usability problems PCs of shee-ite have!

    Do yourself a favour - download Mozilla Thunderbird! It does everything Outlook Express does without the periodic crashes, loss of files, etc.

    Good grief man! Do you mean I am not the first victim?

    I thought I was unique in my ability to suffer...
