    You have posted this message to the wrong newsgroup. The access in
    this groups name refers to Microsoft Access, a database program.
    Please repost to the correct newsgroup for whatever Office program
    you are using. I would suggest you include your Windows and Office
    version number in the message.

    Wrong newsgroup. But you might have multiple e-mail accounts, and send
    some messages from one, other messages from another, and so on.
