reinforcing Tony Sleep's and Norm Unsworth's comments. And logic
seems to me to dictate going as far as Pat, because I guess we don't
know that e-mail which seems on the face of it to be something normal
from a known correspondent is in fact normal at all.

So am I, but I had Norton's NAV on two different Macs for a year each
without NAV finding anything. I guess I'll get it again though.
Because I've updated the OS to 9.1 and feel better about keeping
Norton's contemporaneous with the OS.
On other lists, I've gotten three suggestions that I substitute
another browser for Microsoft's Internet Explorer: two for Opera and
one for Pegasus (in addition to using Eudora rather than Outlook for
e-mail). Does anyone else think either Opera or Pegasus is ready for
the timid to use?
