    I see you're using Tbird and their latest update put a "reply" button to
    the right of the "followup" button that's been messing me up. Is that
    what you're experiencing?

    Best thing to do is just remove the "Reply" button. It was added in
    the last release but was hidden by default. Now they have moved it up
    to the toolbar.

    Right-click the toolbar and select 'customize'. Drag it off of there
    into the toolkit. It's unlikely that anybody would need this as it's
    mostly useless anyway. If one really feels compelled to try and use
    there's still a menu selection for it.

    I was trying to do that earlier but your instructions were perfect and
    the reply button is gone now.

    Somehow my smtp settings were changed overnight, and I couldn't
    post. OMG, imagine?? Heh. I've been getting error messages
    trying to post, but I also wonder if I've been emailing people
    somehow.

    Anyway, I had just noticed this reply thing, too, and wondered
    what the heck, how did I miss that?

    Thanks, Cheryl. Wonder if I'm still talking to myself.

    Thunderbird was updated yesterday and they changed the menu buttons. You
    were replying to the posters instead of the newsgroup. You got the error
    messages because most people post using fake email address - thank god.
    My guess is that a lot of folks have been having that problem -
    including me.

    My suggestion is that you right click on the "reply" button and then hit
    the "customize" option that pops up. Drag the reply button into the icon
    window to get rid of this nasty button. Thunderbird is in a death spiral
    on the way to certain bloatware. That's the breaks.

    Thanks, Cheryl, for the heads up, and Steve for the info.

    It wasn't very nice of them to sneak in a change like that.

    You were probably getting returned messages VIA SMTP, which means you
    were trying to email responses to mostly bogus addresses (since people
    munge their addresses).

    All your setting were probably fine, you were just using the wrong
    button to compose your replies/followups.

    I was doing that, too. Only I don't configure an SMTP server for tbird
    because I use it only for nntp. I did put in smtp server just because
    it was hollaring at me before I figured out I'd accidentally clicked
    "reply" instead of "followup" and I think an email went to Jill. But
    when I figured out what was going on I took the smtp server back out.
    Steve helped with removing the "reply" button and it's back to normal
    now. Why in the world did tbird do that??

    The developers must think that people want features, features, features!
    My last version of T-bird would open up links in it's own tabbed
    browser. That goofy feature seems to have disappeared with the latest
    update. It's a good thing.

    Updates used to be rare and dealt mostly with security issues. These
    days, it seems like there's an update every month with new features
    added that nobody asked for. The relentless updates and software bloat
    pretty much killed Mozilla Firefox for me.

    What T-bird users need is a T-bird app for tablets and mobile devices.
    The developers are ignoring what seems to be inevitable evolution of the
    computer. A lot of tablet users would immediately download a T-bird
    branded email/NNTP newsreader app. As it goes, the new Google Groups
    interface is killing tablet users - and not in a good way. :-)

    I found a usenet app on my new cell phone - Android Usenet I think it's
    called. I got it to load posts one time, now it won't load anything new
    and doesn't give me any errors to figure out why.

    I had the same experience recently. First it worked like crap then it
    was all downhill from there. I think it was called News Buddy. Some pal...

    Agreed with all of the above. I'd get a tablet if it had better apps
    and could do more. As it is, the smallest I have gone is a netbook.

    Since I am in the presence of experts is there anyway to get rid of that
    damned flag waving in my face when I open a Word document? It is
    seriously destroying my timing. First they mess up Word, then they give
    me an Outlook redesigned for kindergartners with bad vision. KISS! (MY
    ASS) ;-)

    My PC (HP) came with Office 2010. I found it impossible to use, mostly
    because I've been using the previous version for 20 years or so.
    Formatting a document the way I'm used to took literally ten times as
    long, and I still couldn't get everything done right. I didn't notice
    a flag waving on startup, but who cares. What a disaster!
