Subject: Off the Screen messages
Date: Thu, 10 Feb 2000 13:17:08 -0800
Don't know if this forum can answer my question, but lately I
have noticed more and more emails sent to this and other lists,
run off the screen. It gets very tedious to read them, going
forward to read one message line, then backing-up to the
beginning of the next line; accessing that next line and going
acrossto read it, and so forth, through the entire message.
I'm using Netscape 4.5+ and a 15" screen, and my preferences are
set at wrapping long lines at 70 characters. Is there anything I
do to eliminate the problem, or is it all up to the senders? This
has only happened in recent years, and is becoming quite a problem
Sorry to bother you with this, but I'm not alone with eye
signt limitations, (right eye limited to no vision). Going back
and forth makes me dizzy, so most of the time, I just delete
these messages. If I deem a message to be very important, I know
I can copy it to WordPad, but don't feel I should have to do
that all the time. Is my email system workable? Or is this up
to others? Can rootsweb's smart programs alleviate this?
Many thanks for your help once again!
