Hmm. When I open the attachment, it opens in a new Tbird window, and if 
I click "Message, Edit as New" Tbird goes all funky on me. *sigh*

No it's not blank. But it doesn't open in the composition window,

I've told the mods to just use the web interface--but it might be worth 
considering at some future point to combine the main email from the 
server with the confirm message (have the confirm message be the subject 
and from... and include the "click here to do this from the web..." 
message into it)?

Anywho--thanks, Mark. :)
