Not any more :)  (well, there is one bit of my writing function that could be nicer, but I'll get to it).

That's what I thought, and was trying to say :)

So, for Outlook, would you move the options that are stored in the pickle to the ini under [Outlook] or something like that?  I didn't do this because some options, particularly folder ids, are not at all suitable for hand-modifying, and would look odd in the ini.
