I spent a bundle on Microsoft Office. More so with the entire department I

work in. What is so hard about Microsoft coming out with an optional add-on

or a patch, to get a button where we can "Select all Rules" ? Why should I

have to spend more money on a third party vendor software to get around that

one feature that's lacking in Outlook? Or must we automate this manual task

that was by nature an automation process to begin with, with another layer of

automation to correct for this deficiency that takes time to manually do?

Time is money!

Um, so what do you want is *users* here in Usenet to do about Microsoft's

code, huh? You're whining to the wrong audience.

What is Usenet:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usenet

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newsgroups

http://www.masonicinfo.com/newsgroups.htm

http://www.mcfedries.com/Ramblings/usenet-primer.asp

When using a webnews-for-dummies interface (e.g., Microsoft's Communities,

Google Groups, or a leech site using a forum-to-Usenet proxy), those are

gateways to Usenet. Despite the pretense of a forum, you are participating

in a newsgroup (aka Usenet).
