    I have been looking for something like this for years but only for Windows 98. Is that available for me?

    Every summer when I return from vacation, my inbox is full to the brim and it takes days to sort through them all. I finally resort to just deleting all but the personal ones.

    I'm afraid your Inbox will still be full. And so will your Sent Items folder. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    But seriously, it's not a good idea to let everyone in the world (who sends you e-mail, including spammers) know that you exist are away for an extended period. Better to sort by the From column in your inbox when you get back and go through them in order of the importance of the sender.

    I guess you're right. but I have NAV 2002 scanning my e-mail both in and outbound. Then I have Zone Alarm Pro both checking my mail and my computer. If a spammer or a virus can get past those, then I need to give up using any computer.
