    I wouldn't have said it was a 'new' application! I tried it at work about a year ago, and was mildly impressed with it, but not enough to keep it installed. The really negative aspect of it (for...

    Re: How big is a graphic? (Any)

    Jerry

    Just to close this post off, it seems that the culprit was a "Desktop SMS" application on the Toshiba laptop. Uninstalling this caused Windows Mail then to perform as expected!
