As a matter of fact, it was my ignorance that caused me to misread Geralds
email.  I didnt realize that Claws was a  mail program and this caused it to
have a different meaning for me.  That being said, if Claws is a mail
program, it would have helped to have it capitalized; and that being said,
assuming his benign message, I didnt get an answer for why people recommend
the extra step of going to Evolution.
And saying that, the only place that I ever got dished for top-posting is on
this list.  Have I now done things the correct Ubu way?  That is by moving
the cursor to the end of the message?  So be it.  And saying that, none of
us actually answered the OPs original request, yet.

And please excuse this veering into a general discussion mode, but that goes
without saying.
