    Isn't that always the way - I am not in the US but in the UK. :-(
    Thanks anyway PA bear, you have been of great help. Incidently, I stopped
    running quotefix this morning and have not had the problem since.

    Thanks. I've not seen any other posts about such issues when using
    OE-QuoteFix in IE7B2, Beck. As I said, I'm running both without problems.

    If you care to investigate this further:

    Create a new Named Identity (File > Identities > Add new identity) and try
    running OE-QF in it. If you can't reproduce the behavior, chances are your
    current identity is damaged, especially if it's the default Main Identity,
    and this is the read problem.

    If so, configure all of your mail & news accounts in the new identity,
    compact all folders in the old identity
    (http://www.insideoe.com/files/maintain.htm#compact), import the old
    identity's messages into the new one
    (http://www.insideoe.com/faqs/how.htm#importOE5) & then delete the old one
    (File > Identities > Manage identities).

    To avoid such corruption in future:

    - Don't use Inbox or Sent Items to archive messages. Move them to local
    folders created for this purpose.

    - Empty Deleted Items folder daily.

    - Disable Background Compacting [N/A in SP2] and frequently perform a manual
    compact of all OE folders while "working offline". More at
    http://insideoe.tomsterdam.com/files/maintain.htm.

    - Do not attempt to close OE via Task Manager or shutdown your machine if
    Automatic Compacting is taking place (WinXP SP2 only).

    - Your anti-virus application's email scanning feature can also cause such
    corruption. Disable it. It provides no additional protection.
