Thanks for the sanity check. I went through exactly the same motions and
had myself half-convinced that I just wasn't looking in the right place.
"I mean, Outlook Express MUST support APOP, right?"

I've been told that there is a public beta of OE out, and I'm hoping APOP
support is something they added for this version. That's "hoping", mind
you, not "expecting".

I'm going back to banging my head against the wall. Sigh.

Thanks again,
