Stupid of me not to see it right in front of my nose! I'm becoming myopic from the many searches I have to do for each step of what I'm trying to do now which is...

...flee from MS WLM 2011 and into Thunderbird. I'm following the steps and good screenshots given by an internet person for $10. It's really good, except it's the wrong version for me, I believe he's using WLM 2009 instead of WLM 2011. Hence I have to rush each time asking where to find things in my version... (However, if I were better versed and smarter I would've seen some of these things before asking...)

Again, thanks a lot for prompt and 2 great solutions! Adela :)

Hello from down under

Yep another way is Alt+F when in the WLM GUI - gives the drop down window.
