Hi Gary,

That has been discussed to the ends of the universe. He and several
others and I use the same Mozilla Thunderbird email client. It works for
me and not them. After (limited time and skills here) the only obvious
difference that I can see is that 'they' use the Fedora packaged
Thunderbird and I do not. Does this make a difference? How the heck
would I know? I'm the dummy.  :-)
