Hmm, maybe.  I only noticed it when I made a boo boo and sort of altered
my file structure and then nothing worked.  I hopped into the registry and
found it was because Win95 stores all associations as short file names.
This REALLY made me mad because if it used LFNs then I would have been

You win the invisable t-shirt.  That is the problem.  Now to figure out
how to make that work at the same time as mail editing.
