Hi Lea, glad you solved the problem, and welcome.

For the future though, when replying to a digest, you should edit the 
subject line to be something more meaningful than "Re: Tutor Digest". 
Using the original subject line of your post is probably best (plus 
"Re:" at the start of course).

Also, there's no need to quote the *entire* digest, potentially hundreds 
or even thousands of lines, just to refer to one small part of it. 
Grumpy old curmudgeons like me have a tendency to bark if you do. (We 
rarely bite though.) So please trim your reply to only include enough 
quoting to establish context:

If you're going to hang around asking a lot of questions, you'll 
probably find it easy to have discussions if you don't use the Digest 
feature and instead receive individual emails.
