I'm comfortable talking about this issue in public. Kurt was right to
put an end to this discussion by exercising his authority as list

outrageous; Kurt does not "exercise ... strong autocratic or

is posted on the list. I hope your carping on the matter does not sway
It has not swayed his perspective one iota. Bravo. Since I've been told
my language is inappropriate I won't label this as I would naturally, but
"advocating an authoritarian hierarchical government" certainly comes to
my mind whether it does to yours or not. May your trains continue running
in a timely fashion.
Your resume claims a notable list of talents and accomplishments.
However, one skill you should cultivate is the use of an Internet search
engine when you run up against a problem without an obvious solution.
That's insulting. I spent hours in front of google trying to find an
answer to this question and I said so in my original post.
A Google search of "outlook newsgroups" reveals 19 newsgroups devoted to
all aspects of Outlook. Kurt went above and beyond the call when he
gave you a link to Microsoft support. As a freebee, I offer another.
I suggest you throw yourself at the tender mercies of an appropriate
microsoft.public.outlook.* group and ask for help.
You're so kind. I'm planning on giving the Microsoft newsgroups a try.
I'm obviously willing to waste a little time to prove my point.
There are two ways of constructing a software design. One way is to make
it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies. And the other way
is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies.
