Well, I know I've had it! Yahoo seperates my mail into bulk so I have
no problem getting rid of the stuff, but if I leave my computer for a
few hours, the very tiny box that I have gets filled.

Soooooo, I'm opening another account that I shall keep private for my
friends. You know who you are! You can write me for it and if I'm
home your mail will actually get through. Whether or not I can get
through to YOUR box is another issue. You might also ask someone you
know who is a very good friend of mine and claims immunity from all
this nonsense as I did send my new address to this person. Or, you
can phone me and I'll give it to you.

Good luck to the rest of you!
