Using Mozilla 1.5 betha, Norton virus check an Zona alarm .
If in the toolbox for junk mail the boxes automatic deletion of junk in 4 days
and when I manually ... then the reading mail from the host system (provider does noet respond. after a few blinks of the zone alarm icon this stops.
Only with ctrl, alt, del the not responding mozilla 1.5b can be terminated. This
causes a sytem stop (blue screen with an illegal instruction). Only reset will
restart the system.
The internet browsers works fine, sending mail was not tested.
I use windows 98 2nd edition with all relevant patches.

Why is the Junk controlbox not hosted in the preference window? Is it possible
to extend the help window with a description of the use of junk. As I get over
75 junk mails a day the automatic deletion is very important!! Most of these are
forwarded from my office, here a robust firewall is installed.
Cleaned messages are forwarded (25 a day), about 40 are clean but junk, and 10
come directly to my home email address.

Good Luck in solving this,
Dr. Herman Steeneken
