Uh, thanks for that Brad, I got it, it's complicated. All I need is a simple
way to get a formatted html email with Approved through the system. You're
telling me that that isn't going to be the case? I'm using an applescript
with Entourage on OS 10.47 to send the file to mailman. Perhaps another
email client that allows me to put the Approved comment in the email file
