New in January 2019

The new year’s reorganisation of my email Inbox and archived message stores brought me to a practical matter that had been bugging me for a while in my everyday use of Microsoft Outlook.

One of the incidental benefits of decades of closely studying Windows is that I’m not entirely helpless when Windows programs misbehave. This is not to say that the diversion is ever anything but intensely welcome. I really would very much prefer that the program I have for email simply does its job. But when its misbehaviour leaves me frightened even to check for email, it is no longer just another irritation such as Windows 10 throws our way as ordinary. It is instead something that demands attention and solution.
