OExpress insists on trying to send a second copy of outgoing mail. The first outgoing goes through (most of the time), but then OE sends a second copy of the original message that fails. It's annoying to have to delete/hide the window announcing the failure to send the message the second time. Since this also happens on my other machine (this time trying to send the same message four times) with an older version of OExpress, I do think this is not a problem originating with me. Tnx for all advice...Andy
