Since Tom has chosen to critize my handling of email (though you have to dig
through the misspellings, grammatical errors, and the ever present ad
hominem attacks he considers debate,
 Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong, if anything? I really need to
solve this "affilction."

Sure - and my point was the lack of depth of the original post. At least in
attempting to add some depth, I used something resembling grammer, diction
and a coherent argument.
