Subject: Re: [GN] Preparing for the impending IE7 release
Date: Tue, 17 Oct 2006 13:40:22 -0700
Since I have two pretty much identical machines, with the same update program set-up, I can't think that
this was "pushed".
I have IE6 on my laptop and IE7Beta on the tower. I didn't want to have a Beta on my laptop, incasea
(that's "in case of. . . " whatever disaster you can think of.)
At any rate, IE7 was not pushed to my laptop. I expect it will be when I boot it after the changeover.
On another subject, the "new" format of sending is confusing me. Used to be that "reply all" went *to* the
list and to the originator. Now, it is going to the originator, copied to the list, and, in this case,
also "to" the person (n.east) that was on the *to* when it arrived at my mailbox. Very confusing.
