Dear Sally, Since you're using Netscape mail, go to the "View" menu and choose "Wrap Long Lines." That should solve the above-mentioned problem. I don't recommend you generate hard carriage returns except at the beginning and end of paragraphs. That way the message can wrap to the width of the reader's window. You can customize your display font face and size under Edit>Preferences in the "Appearance: Fonts" category. Also, you can sort your mail by sender, subject, or date. All you need to do is click on the appropriate column heading above the list of messages. I hope this helps you with your mail problems. I've been using Netscape mail for two years now and have been very happy with it. Best, Daniel -- Daniel J. O'Neil M.S.
