    I've always used Outlook express, but now have its big brother on my computers. I configured the family computer to use Outlook as its e-mail program. Now I have a slight problem. When browsing the web, I sometimes come across a site I want to collect, but not necessarily add to my favorites. In the past, I'd send the link to myself as an e-mail attachment, then, when the e-mail arrived, I'd create a folder for it in Express so I'd be able to organize and retrieve the data (I suppose I could do this in favorites but I just got in the habit of using Express instead).

    Well, Outlook doesn't like attachments. It warns me everytime I create one and then blocks them when I try to receive them. These are attachments I've sent to myself! I know there's a way to disable this feature. Any of you smart MOUS people (plural of MOUS...MICE?) know what it is? Thanks.

    Would it not be easier to simply have various folders within favorites and organise these "occasional sites" that way?

    2002 SP-1. Yes, I could just use my favorites folder, but sometimes I like sending links to my yahoo account. My favorites exist on each computer individually. If I add something to the favorites list on the family computer, I can't access it from the laptop later. If I send the link to my yahoo account from the family computer, I can later access the link (I don't always remember the url) from my laptop by accessing my yahoo mail, then add it to my favorites...so sometimes, I want to visit a site just one or two times without having it in favorites. Call me fickle...or just that I don't want some piece of M$ software pushing me around.

    Thanks for the link, Andy. I'll check it out.
