1) changed my setting in preferences> email and newgroups > composition:
a) forwarded message inline to forwarded messgae attachment
b) start message above the quotes message to start my message below the
quotes message

2) Lists of email folders:
In CUNIX in the directory  where I am storing all email that relates to
the spring 2003, an ls -l gives
drwx--S---   2 sheila   staff        8192 Apr 17 09:37 admin-sp-2003
-rw-------   1 sheila   staff      447352 Apr 15 12:50 classrm-admin-sp-2003
drwx--S---   2 sheila   staff        4096 Apr 17 09:42 other-train-sp-2003
drwx--S---   2 sheila   staff        4096 Apr 17 09:39 registration-sp-2003
I am attaching a screen shot of this in gif format.  I am also listing
what is in the file list in mozilla and in the screen shot,
folder -- admin-sping-03 with indication there are email folders within
folder -- classrm-admin-sp-03  which is an email folder
folder--  ils-sp-2003  which not in the spring-2003 folder but in the
other-train-sp-2003 folder as you can see from the ls -l in CUNIX
folder -- other-train-sp-2003 which contains other email folders
including ils-sp-2003. Yesterday, ils-sp-2003 was in the
other-train-sp-2003  folder
folder -- registration-sp-2003 which contains other email folders
3) Mozilla show sum-2003 folder which contains sub-folders and email
folders displays as an email folder.  Yesterday, after much working with
subscribe, I was able to get Mozzilla to see this as top level folder
with the same four nested folders as in the spring-2003 folder.
