I got the Blue Screen of Death 4 times in 30 minutes. It was working at work for a long time. When suddenly... I clicked on my 2nd POP3 inbox to open it and blue screen of death. "How odd" I thought. I rebooted and tried again. BOOM! Ok.. Let's reboot and look at the properties of the POP3. I was playing with them a little. Oops. double clicked instead of single clicked; it's trying to open it again.. BOOM! and again.. Ouch! I must destroy this inbox in a Klingon fashion! So, finally I deleted it immediately. I recreated it again. All is well. I wish I was using an Operating System at work that doesn't let any application come by and blow it up. WindowsNT. Service pack 6a. The solution is to delete and recreate if you have trouble with something. Anything. hee heee. Ok maybe.
Sounds like you found the Bouncing Betty feature. That kind of Random And Mysterious behavior happens to me from time to time. You pistol whipped that one good. One other trick I've found when RAM behavior happens is using the repair feature. Run the SO Setup option (from the desktop and select the repair option). I have no idea what the heck it does, but danged if it doesn't do the trick 52.7% of the time (44.2% I do something like you did, and the remaining 3.1% of the time I end up reinstalling (and having to reset all of my #*#&@&*^$ options). ------------------ author of: StarOffice Companion Standard CYA******************************* All responses to questions posed in this News Group are given on an "as is" basis.
