Hi Richard;

Thanks for the help. This is a good example, I think, of how cryptic
Emacs can be. I followed your first set of instructions exactly, but
still had difficulty. When I put my "cursor over the variable name" and
then hit C-h v, I did not get an option, I got this:

Describe variable (default mail-user-agent) (mail-user-agent)

Which, I think, just tells me what the variable is called. Probably this
was due to the fact that I was just hovering over it in your post, as I
was not able (as I said in my first post) to find this variable in
customize. However, your tip got me thinking about a more general
search, outside of org-customize. So, I just entered "customize" (which
I have done before) and drilled my way down to where I found the
variable. There I was able to set the option as you describe above.

Emacs is a strange beast. Strong, old, canny. But very strange.
Thanks for the help.
