Dear Pastor JW,

Christian?  I am.  I use thunderbird.  I had trouble with kmail when I 
first tried to use it.  I notice there are some color bars to the left 
of the comments, is that done automatically?  It appears a great way to 
solve my desired result.  Mostly, I want to show respect and 
consideration when posting.  I am trying to learn some of the 
abbreviations too to shorten my comments.  I lack confidence in my 
wording and get a little wordy.  I will try to learn shorter ways to say 
what I want.  I prefer not to anger anyone with my inexperience.

I am going to close as I would with my children and friends; if you are 
not a Christian, I mean no disrespect.

In CHRIST,
Steven
