    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.
