does the 'view messages posted since last visit' work for anyone?

No, it hasn't worked for me, John.

It always has, John, except for a day last week when it didn't, and then returned to normal.

Always works for me - are you deleting your 'cookies?'

Perhaps it got embarrassed when it found out that all the other computers were doing their stuff...

John--

No ideas off the top of my head, though it's pretty late for ideas tonight anyway :) I don't use the View Messages feature since I read on multiple computers, so I'm not sure about that, either--and I still use Netscape, though I suspect that Explorer is faster for the web (but since I use Netscape for mail, it's generally easier to stick with it).

If anything occurs to me, I'll let you know. Might be your cookie file, but if you copy it from one machine to another, be sure to save the old file in case something doesn't work. I'm not familiar with the finer points of cookies, but Scott might be able to help you with those. I'm sure it has something to do with that file, though.

Gee, not much help this time, am I? Sorry about that--I'll see what I can come up with.
