So-- gimmie a program or some such so that when using hotmail, I bottom post
automaticly and can set it to what I want it to be (example, on mon, sep 2,
blah blah wrote, or you wrote etc). Right now its sort of impossible to
bottom post if I don't know how to shorten the headers, and besides, you'd
stil be reading the above messages, and would be scrolling just as far down,
anyway, so what's the point of me bottom-posting if your going to have to
scroll down nevertheless" Sorry this was discussed way back when but I
haven't checked my email in a while.
