Thanks for that info...I will look into it. But frankly why should I waste
my time? Isn't that what the troll is trying to accomplish? Getting
someone to feed their fire? I just won't bother replying to the one(s) who

many address books your e-mail address may have been in, even if you never

Don't give up on posting here...just take the heat and get on with your
