    Filters

    In the middle of typing a post, my brain left to consider another matter. When it re-embodied, there was a notice on the screen that said "Holding the shift key for 8 seconds would shutoff the "Filters". What are these Filters? I chose no- don't shut off the filters then decided to get the notice back and held the shift for the 8 seconds. No notice this time, but I'm sure it shut down the filters. What are these filters? DRB

    I am going to take a guess here, but I think it has to do with your "message rule filters" that some people set up in Outlook/OE to filter out junk mail. BUt that is just a guess.

    Thanks guys! I've been getting most of my questions answered by simply searching this forum instead of posting- but sometimes I have to ask. DRB

    BTW,.. I didn't know where to put this Thread until I got the answer. It should probably be in Windows XP or MS Applications DRB
