No problem, my friend. I was a guilty-as-charged "top poster" until Eric 
H. reminded me of the etiquette standards. As an old USENET junkie, I 
should have known better, but I was just letting Thunderbird work as I 
had it set up for regular emails. Now I've changed those settings, though.

All's well.
