For Mail Monitor users:
If you change the settings for your mail reader,
"C:\Program Files\Outlook Express\msimn.exe" (or whatever it is for you) to "mailto:" (without the quotes),
the button "Open mail reader" will open a "New message" window instead of your whole mail program. Big Grin

Only useful if you think it is. I do. Wink

That is very clever. Well done. I wonder what made you think of that.

Of course if you put into thare it will launch URL. Smile

Thanks cmishima Smile

What made me think of that is the need for it.
I only use my desktop pc to download messages, and when I use my laptop I'd rather have a quick way to reply to some of them than to open Outlook Express. Wink
Yuri said a "Reply" button will be added to Mail Monitor in a future version, but in the meantime I'll use my little trick. Big Grin

On another subject, I made a different version of your avatar:
yours is 194kb, so takes about a minute to download on a modem connection (like mine), and is being "squashed" to fit a square.
So I made it smaller, square, and optimized it (3.35kb).
You obviously don't have to use it, but here it is:

Thank you for creating my better avatar. I have changed it now. I expect it will load faster. Smile

You're welcome. Wink
Glad you like it. Smile
