Steve and Jeron:

I downloaded the Hotmail extension and put it into TB.  When TB looks for a
Hotmail address for me it does not find one.  I checked Hotmail on line and
my mail goes there also.  When I reply from Hotmail the reply is from
Jeffreytooker at  It seems the whole thing is actually going through
Hotmail.  All of my several years of email files are now in TB.  I would
like not to loose my MSN email but I guess it is another step away from MS
and that might be a good thing.  I am retired here and plan to be here for a
long time.  So using my Frontier email address will work.  I will have to go
through the hassle of changing email adress, but it will not kill me.  I
will work my way around it.  

Thanks to all for the help.
