All seems to running pretty well now, except for two things. I'll ask for help #2 in another post.

A previous version of TB (?) allowed me to add folders to the account so I could direct appropriate mail to those folders. In the above version, I can't find anything associated with such. If it's possible, where? Is there a workaround?

Thanks -- Terry

Right click on an existing folder in the folder pane and select "new folder" from the context menu. Or select the parent folder and then use file -> new -> folder.

It's worked this way as long as I can remember, I suspect you just forgot how to do it.

Grooaannn. You nailed it! I had forgotten! Many thanks! I have been having all sorts of mail problems and after trying a few I gave up and started using MS Outlook. Very powerful software, but way too complicated for my old brain (I'm 84).

Many thanks again, and I'm sure I'll be back here soon!

Cheers - Terry/wb4fxd
