Michelle, Thanks for the info. on filtering out spam mail. I didn't know
how to do it but went into my toolbar and played around until I found it and
figured it out. I didn't even know it could be done until then. I now
realize that trying to return all the junk to Yustas61 was futile and only
gave everyone more junk, though I didn't address any but one piece back to
the list. Sorry everyone. Linda
