I'm not going to waist my breath arguing over what my app may, or may
not, be capable of doing. Since the feature in question hasn't been

I get smiles and giggles out of somebody who will compose a mail as
long as that to tell me something I haven't created yet doesn't work.

Well, thank you anyway for your "helpful" information,
