(apologies if the 'sender' of this reply is different...I'm in the process of
dropping my dial-up ISP after15 years and finally having the means to get satellite
speed!  Wish it was DSL, but I'll take what I can get so long as it's better
than dial-up! lol)

  Not an IMAP thing, so not that and as I said, it suddenly started to happen.

  As for the rule that Colin brings up...that fits the timeline so I'll try to see
  if your suggestion fixes it. I'm sure it will, because I was playing hell trying
  to figure out how to make all these 'bug' reports coming into the list not show up
  in my 'inbox', heh.

  Thank you both. I'll let you know what happens in a few days.
