Bradakis emailed me and basically said to stay away from, and I quote
"Microsoft crap". Pissed me off. I had just upgraded to IE 4.0 and my mail
was not making the list. I did not realize that the HTML send option was
checked. My mistake for not checking first. But I really didn't want to hear
Bradakis' one-sided views and I told him so. Can you tell I don't like
being told what to do by a stranger - even if he does run the bloody list.
