I stilkl have a few problems that I hope someone can give me
advice on solving.

I am stuck using the old version (7.x), which was installed by
the guy who put the computer together.  He installed VISTA,
then Ubuntu.  I have installed version 8.10 several times but I
am not able to access the new version.  It goes to the original
boot screen where the old version and VISTA options are.
How can I get to the newest version (8.10) and then upgrade
to 9.xx?. I tried to upgrade from the Ubuntu site but only get
error messages such as the files don't exist.

The image on the screen is so small that its difficult to read
the text.  If I recalled the VISTA password I would go to Vista
and fiddle with the settings there.  The password was created 
by the guy who installed it and I don't recall what it was.  He
was fired by the store - CompuSave of Lynnwood - for stealing
and I can't ask him.

I am using Evolution for the email.  Figured out how to change
the default settings to make the body text larger but subject
and header type is still small.

How can I fixed these problems?  Would another e/m client be

Another problem is that I like to save some of the e/m as just
text.  What I save is full of HTML codes.  Had this problem with
Eudora in Windows but was able to changed the settings to
eliminate these.

Is there a solution to this problem?

Thanks in advance
