Hi Andrej,

Confirming it worked as described.  :)

I have gone back to using the 32-bit version, but I noticed under
Help/About/Info tab, even under 64-bit Windows (7), that information
referenced 'Operating System: Win32', but the e-mail headers referenced
'x86_64-w64-mingw32'. Wasn't sure if the reference to 'Win32' might
have been an error/typo of some kind, or what that 'mingw32' actually
