I love the outline view. It really helps. At first I thought the new board was going to be a pain cause you had to click thru every message...thank goodness we don't after all! But, as I was going thru outline view I saw a message from ecscbs and I was going to reply but couldn't? It was dated March 24th. Does this board work like the last one? Once a message is archived can you not post? How do you know it's archived? on the outline view?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hi ^Beau's^ Mom, the 'outline view' saves the day, eh? All this new stuff is pretty confusing! (Not fair to challenge a dusty brain, like mine!) :) But, it sure sounds like ^Beau^ is helping you figure this out!

Hmmmmm, if you use the outline view, you will see the board seperated by it's folders. Each of the folders has a purple title. General Discussions, Questions, etc. Then, once you scroll past those.... you get into the archives. (pre transition) And yeppers, once it has archived (which won't happen any more) you can't reply to those messages. But, if you want.... you can c&p them, and start a new discussion!

Now..... if I can only figure out which of the 20 different windows I've opened is the original! :) ARGH ..... ^Whisp^ .... help your Mom!!! :)

Thanks Lin. Too funny. Someone I know was having difficulty with Bcc awhile back :( and when I read your post I had no idea what c&p was? I was going to email you but I finally figured it out! Duh! LOL It was driving me crazy cause I couldn't figure it out. Obviously, I do need help with computers!

^Beau's^, rather embarrassed, mom, Carrie
