As I become more aware of various setup tips, I will pass them on. Most are ready to go out of the box. Use the settings above if you encounter trouble. If all else fails, you could read the manual or help file provided with the program... But only as a last resort. If you still have trouble LINK TO FEEDBACK FORM, or [C]omment to SysOp on the BBS.
