    yes - as long as you aren't using Outlook....Open Office doesn't have an
    Outlook equivalent....

    Outlook is a componet of 'Office' (email, contact manager, diary etc)
    Outlook Express is a standard part of Windows XP. (email, newsgroups)

    Gordon was pointing out if you remove 'Office' you will also remove
    'Outlook' not 'Outlook Express'

    Your comment 'never use Outlook Exp' is somewhat confusing given the headers
    from your post list your newsgroup client as "Outlook Express 6"

    What do you use for email?

    Bill, if you go back and read all of the messages in this thread, you
    will notice that there is something different about where your responses
    are placed compared to how everyone else 'talks'.

    That's because everyone else is having a conversation with each other,
    but /you/ aren't. So, your words look funny where they are and don't
    fit in. If everyone conversed like you, the conversation would be
    upside down; but instead, your part is upside down and their part is
    rightside up.

    Here's an article about the subject in a website for new newsgroup
    participants. Q1:
    What is "quoting" in newsgroup postings? - Q2: How should I use the
    quoted text and arrange it with my own text?

    It is really very simple. When you hit reply, you don't start typing,
    you start trimming, except for the attribution. When you get to a part
    which represents the words you are going to reply to, you skip a line
    and type your words under there. Then you trim the rest of the way to
    the bottom, unless you find some more words you need to type under.

    24hshd is not a microsoft.public group, where the MS MVPs lead the way
    and the newbies follow in their footsteps about generalized top posting
    with a minimum number of trimmed and contextualized posts. That would
    not be a good place to 'promote' proper posting, because the general
    crowd and the leaders top post. Those are unusual newsgroups, probably
    caused by MS's belief and configuration to favor corporate email TOFU
    textover fullquote under messaging and it 'spreads' into the newsgroup

    24hshd is mostly trimmed and contextualized. This thread is a pretty
    typical example.

    As long as you don't work with people/businesses that use MS Office you
    can use Open Office products without needing MS Office, but, if you have
    any MS Office documents, other than plain text, you might want to keep
    MS Office installed for the many times when formatting doesn't convert
    when opening in OO or when their spreadsheet doesn't open macro's or VB
    scripts or when their Power Point doesn't convert properly.

    Oh, if you use MS Outlook then you should not uninstall until you've
    moved your email to another product.

    You will lose the spelling checker that comes with MS Office that is now
    available to you in Outlook Express. However, there are free spelling
    checkers for OE.

    Another point. OpenOffice uses its own macro language. MS Office has
    its own macro language. They aren't the same. If you have macros in
    Word or Excel, they won't run when you open the document in OpenOffice,
    and visa versa.
