OK ... thanks ... I adopted Vista as soon as it was publicly available at
the end of last January and have had to try several different commercial
firewall/antivirus packages to find the right fit for my particular Vista
config. Over the last five years, I have tried all of the major packages ...
and during 2007 with Vista, I used four commercial and one free solution.
I even considered going the 'no commercial package' route ... Vista firewall
hardened in Advanced settings, Defender, local group policy ... but I don't
know enough to make the right decisions ... what the heck is a named pipe,
anyway? (g) I am working on that ... buying books, reading blogs, white
papers, studying for exams, etc. ...
So I really hope I will not have to go find something else to try yet again
.... the replies: receiver address/default address problem needs to be fixed,
but I am a very patient person and will try troubleshooting/workarounds and
putting up with _some_ problems while waiting for a solution ...
I am wondering, is it just TM that is doing this or are there others, too?
.... also, what about the advice NOT to use any external filter hooks in
WinMail ... I have read in more than one newsgroup/blog that says it really
isn't necessary ...
thanks ... vanilla
