Well, let's see if this works.. just the "to line", huh?
I use an hp computer, at home, internet explorer (browser), and outlook
express is my default mail box.  No, I improvised a subject line when
responding to uncle scam, to make it look like and be recognized as a reply,
and had scrolled up to the "welcome to hpn!" message/mail to click for
sending that.  I think I might have it now, though.  I'll just send it off
and we'll see.
