Belated reply as my broadband died for several days.

This is a great site  - which confirms that 'latest version' rarely
means better.  It usually means even more bloated.

I've just downloaded free PDF reader FoxitReader, following a magazine
recomendation.  I had used the latest Adobe for a while but recently
downgraded to an earlier version which was much faster.
Early days yet, but Foxit just wipes the floor with any Adobe reader.

Glad you liked the site.  I have been using Foxit for a year or more and
it is amazing.  One of the MS MVP's recommended it.  I had WinME before
and had to be really careful with any of the new programs so that site
was a godsend.  Perfect for anyone using less than XP.  And frankly, I
rarely put the *latest and greatest* of most programs on this XP
computer.  I let others beta test them first (VBG).

Did all the Word files sent as attachments have more than 1 dot in the name, by
any chance?

No they didn't.

But it reminds me of a bug relating to Iomega Zip drives a few years
ago.   It took me a couple of hours to find out why about 1 in 60
files disappeared when sent to the drive.

The time stamp of the file suffered from rounding errors -
6 mins, 30.2 seconds appeared as 6 mins 30 secs
6 mins 30.7 seconds appeared as 6 mins 31 secs,

But
6 mins 59.6 seconds disappeared as it was rounded to 6 mins 60 secs,
which was trapped by Iomega somewhere as illegal.

I got the true times from X-Tree - a great bit of software. No wonder
it took me hours to trace it.
