Whap! (sound of my palm smacking my forehead) Of course! I was mentally
stalled out trying to think of how I could do it with the info in the
subject line. I guess I didn't think of using the "Sender" line because it
doesn't show in my Inbox summary window. It just goes to show how all them
pesky trees can block the view of the forest now and again.

Thanks, Dan, for clearing the cobwebs out of my cranium. Now I can
concentrate on upping the Audi content of my messages to make eliot happy. :)>

Yup, you're right on both counts (much to my chagrin on the first one). See
my reply to Dan.

Thanks, Rich.

Actually, Eudora Pro *will* do just what you say, eliot. I just had my head
up and locked. See my reply to Dan.

Hasta luego!
