Unfortunately, a while back, Yahoo changed how multiple messages about the same subject (even to different reflectors - those are "bundled" into a single message) are handled and, when a reply to any of those messages is sent, all of the attached messages cannot be deleted!  At least I have not found a way!

The only way all the replies can be "deleted" is to actually retype the pertinent data into a completely new message and then type the response.  This takes a LOT of time and, to be blunt, is not worth the effort because a very few persons have download problems.  I know that this seems crass.  However, such is one of the "facts of life" of the "modern" Internet.

Please guys edit you digest reply to only what you are replying to.
Those of us that live in the rural area only have 3 ways of getting email

1. dial up - only good to 1 mile or so from the phone company office.
2. satellite - fast but has a daily limit. once that limit is reach either
must pay more or the download speed is slowed way down.

Option 3 is to block offenders. and I have not problem doing so.
Your choice.
