I've used them, Bud, but not extensively, It could be argued that 
I'm not as familiar with them as I am the two that I discussed 
earlier. When I did look at them, I sure saw nothing to alter my 
satisfaction of my choices over them. 

As a matter of principle, almost, I tend to prefer dedicated items 
in almost any field. My M6 and R6.2 illustrate that as well as 
anything. Many shotguns, for specific target shooting events 
further this hang-up. I have 16 yard trap guns, guns for doubles 
shooting, two for handicap events (depending on what yardage 
I'm shooting from at any given time, skeet guns and several for 
different kinds of game.

I brought it up, mainly to offer some, apparently without the 
knowledge, that there are free dedicated email clients that will 
handle filtering in any way that I've ever been able to think of and 
seemingly every way that gurus have thought of that never occur 
to me. It appears that many aren't aware of or can not filter on 
other than the subject lines.

Ya see, deep down, I just can't get it through my thick skull why 
anyone feels that the %*&#@  [Leica] tagline is necessary. 8^)

        To steal ideas from one is plagiarism;
        to steal from many is research.
