thanks for all the good advice.  my 'experiment' did come through on the
digest list as the lo-o-o-o-ong lines of duplicated text that has been
driving everybody crazy.  

interestingly,    sheryl.faria [at] (Faria, Sheryl) sent me a private post
Hi Christine, your post looks totally normal to me. (I also am including
Lynne's original post in my reply, don't know if you wanted to see how that
one carried over also.)


that private post came back to me looking perfectly normal.

in any case, this exchange has been the goose i needed to get my address
book, favorites and personal file cabinet moved over to the outlook express
provided with cox@home, my direct service cable provider.

This is exactly what causes the problem. The best thing is to use a good
email  program like Eudora or Outlook Express. With AOL, I'm not sure you
can do that, however.  I do not encourage people to get involved with AOL
for this reason.
