I did that, a few days ago, but if it starts a new thread, I'll try to
remember not to do that.

Amen. Another thing I learned about, after someone on the list
explained that it was happening, is that when using Gmail on the web,
it apparently defaults to sending HTML, which *never* is something I
want to do. I try to remember to click on "Rich Formatting" and then
"Plain Text", to be sure that I am sending Text and not HTML.
