Re: NY tasting in Sept

I am OK with most other Fri/Sat as well. As per Sept, 20/21 work best for me, but if others find a different weekend works better, I so far can make it.

Re: Messages: Outbox vs. Sent

Messages: Outbox vs. Sent

Hi. I noticed that some of the e-mails I am trying to send out are ending up in Outbox instead of Sent folder. I emptied my mailbox a little and resent those messages, but they still go to the Outbox. What am I still forgetting to do? Thanks.
