rd - very interesting ...

Try it out with unimportant emails you wish to receive. Otherwise the extra 'oogle' in the email addy shouldn't cause too much bother.

Thanks for that.

I wondered what the difference was, although I have Gmail from within the UK.

Now if somebody could please explain why I have while my son has!
