I have been in contact with Wolfram Tech. Assistance re a problem I have been having with one of my notebooks. In response to their request, I made several attempts to attatch a copy of the notebook to them via Outlook Express. All such attempts failed with the result that OE could not be opened again without a fatal access denied error occuring within a few seconds of launching the browser. I spent a few days back and forth with microsoft, and i now can fix OE if one of these errors occurs. However, the behavior persists, & it is independent of which notebook I send, whether the notebook is empty or not, whether or not any other programs are open at the time. If I convert the notebook to text form, I can send it , provided I don't open the Outbox in OE before the email is transferred to "Sent Items". There seems to be something about the *display* of the notebook (perhaps the Mathematica notebook icon itself) that causes OE to fail catastrophically when sending it. I eventually FTP'ed my notebook to my account on my campus' central computer & used Pine to send it from there. Hopefully support at Wolfram got it. This is not an acceptable method for me to send notebooks to support repeatedly, however. I asked Wolfram support if they knew anything about this problem, and they did not, so I am submitting it here in case anyone cab tell me how to avoid this problem. I could, for instance install Eudora; but I don't want to do all that without hearing that it solves my problem. thanks, mark harder harderm at ucs.orst.edu
