    Didn't know if I should have added to your comments via your posting Mike, or not, so please forgive me if I did this wrong. ;o)

    I had Irfanview installed but not the plug-ins, have them all safely installed now, so thanks, helped me out there too.

    Also, is my word wrapping ok now? Got pulled up on it again even though I had changed the setting as you had previously advised me to do.

    No, your word wrap is *still* screwed up. Look at the quoted text
    below, carefully...

    Go to Tools / Options / Send ... 'News sending format'.
    Press 'Plain Text Settings'. Set 'Automatically wrap text at [72]
    characters when sending'. OK / APPLY / OK.

    Hi Raine
    Yeah. You should have replied there. :)
    Rather than start another new thread.
    Irfanview is great! Enjoy.

    Mike I have done all that, even downloaded and am using Quotefix.
    I can't solve all this I don't know how to!
    Thanks for the help, it IS appreciated, but it's time to quit. I'm in a rare old tizz here.

    Then you have done it wrong. OE Quotefix is not the solution
    in this case.
    Yes, you can; you've been told how to.
    Is that your answer to every problem/difficulty? You seem to
    use it rather a lot.
    Don't dismiss it; try again.

    No Mike it isn't the answer to all my problems, but you're telling me how to do something I've done over and over again, I just re-checked those settings, they're EXACTLY as you said they should be. I'm in deep water, I can't solve the unsolvable, sorry.

    You are obviously doing *something* wrong. You can't be the
    only person that has this problem - unless your name is Magrat/
    Cassandra. You can clearly see that your lines are NOT wrapping
    at 72 characters, which makes a long thread become almost

    Can I point something out here, please?
    I really don't understand a thing about *wrapping text*, so I can only follow your instructions as you advise me too. You told me how to change the setting, so I did, but still it's wrong. I agree something is amiss, but I haven't a clue what, or even how to put it right.
    I really wish I did!
    Perhaps I should take up knitting, at least there if I make a mistake I can always put it right. ;o)

    Wrapping text is where your software places a hard [RETURN]
    when you type without entering one yourself. Your settings,
    as you can see, are NOT automatically wrapping the text, but
    allowing it to run on. This is both untidy, and hard to read in
    quoted text - and I, for one, have little patience for difficult
    to read posts. I have seen (many) other O.E. users with the
    same problem, but I have never seen one where the OP says
    they have changed the settings, but they don't work.

    I fully understand all what you're saying Mike, but the fact remains I changed those settings to what you told me to.
    This is the setting ...


    Mail Sending Format ... Plain Text.
    Plain Text Settings ... MIME / Quoted Printable.
    Automatically wrap text at [72] characters when sending.

    As you see, I DO have the setting right.

    Raine typed...
    If you're still using Quotefix, you *must* ensure that the wrap is set
    to the same value that you've set in IE.

    ie Right click the ie icon, in the tray.
    Left click "Show Dialog"
    Set the "Wrap at column" value
    Left click "Hide", to close the dialog box.

    "So, Mr Slumpy you *really* are the perpetual comedian, aren't you ?" I
    threw back my head and roared with laughter as Raine continued:
    Try repairing OE through add/remove programs and double clicking
    "Microsoft Internet Expl and tools" and choosing 'repair'.
    You never know.
    no more
    no less
    just slumpy

    You're welcome.
    I do hope you get the word wrap fixed. I have no problem "seeing" it
    because my reader wraps faulty word wraps. I had to undo my setting
    so see what the fuss was about.

    It looks, to others, like you have a sentence a mile long.
    You would have to scroll way to the right to see all you've written.

    Maybe if you uninstall OEQuoteFix. Reboot, recheck your settings and
    see what happens.

    Just a thought.

    Please don't get frustrated. Okay? I've been there a zillion times
    and it doesn't help. Just keep plugging away at the problem. You'll
    fix it. :)

    Double-check the QF settings against the jpeg I emailed you of my
    settings tab.

    And click on 'hide' to save.

    I can see all the text without having to scroll,
    always have been able to do so. I try to do as I'm
    told, and I'm certainly learning as I go, so I am
    thankful for that.
    It IS frustrating, though, one simple setting and I'm, (as I'm sure Mike is), tearing my hair out.
    Knitting IS an easier option, right now. ;o)

    LOL. If I had taken up knitting, instead of playing with Windows, I

    Until you can sort this issue out, I suggest you get used to
    entering your own hard return at the appropriate spot, so
    that your text is readable.
