Thanks for this link. Yes, that is what I expected. The only difference is that the word 'recent:' is required within Virginmedia, which has to be used on all three machines. The first time one uses it one gets the whole of the previous 30 days messages (!!!) but after that it is only the new ones. This works fine with Mozilla Thunderbird as well as OE and on my ipod touch. I shall have to see what happens when I get my btinternet connection going. If I hit a snag I'll let you know 🙂 I can always try that and see what happens. Either a deluge or nothing!
Well, I don't do it as I only have one system to download to, so if you have any snags I won't be much use to you! 🙂 But others will I expect. Just came across the page the other day from a search for something else.
