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.
