Tim -

Another try to forward - I'm forwarding the "sent" item (which shows the

Maybe it's more of an "outlook" problem!

Thanks - Geoff

Does this log file ring bells with anyone?  I haven't seen errors coming
out of GetHTMLFromRTFProperty before.

Geoff, you may have intended to attach the email message you couldn't
delete as spam, but no such attachment arrived -- just the log file.
