Hi James K
That worked, though what I thought might happen that did not, is once I delete an item, outlook does not automatically drop to the next mail, making it far quicker to delete old mails (it always used to) can I be cheeky and ask you to help me with this for the same fee and you will receive a Biiig smiley face!
Sorry to be a nusence, but there is no 'purge' tab on my drop down menu in edit, have tried looking everywhere......
Ok thanks James
Have to go out now, so have printed off your retort and trust your expertise!
Consider the rating done as v. good. I am surrounded by IT wizzes, though sometimes too embarrassed to ask their help. Will look you up for any further quieries.
