I was cleaning up my inbox and found a "discussion item" that I had written just the day before. It shows as having been posted to my inbox, and I so cleverly entitled it "what is this?". I have no memory of having created it or even of seeing the words 'discussion item' anywhere. Where did I create it from? Discussion item is not one of the options under File |New or Forms in Inbox, Calendar or Tasks and it's not an Action anywhere I can find. It's hard for me to believe that I just created it last week, but that's what the "posted" date shows. It seems to be something that one posts. I wasn't in Outlook Express last week to access any newsgroup.
