    Generally when I have to post a long note I write it out in word, check for spelling etc. then C & P but I can't do that in the message box. It just shows up blank. Any suggestions?

    Not in the " Quick Reply " box, but if you click on the "Post Reply" or "Go Advanced" button then you have many other options here that you never seen and a spell checker is one of them. :)

    If you can't paste by using the mouse then try the ctrl-v to paste. I have that happen to me where it only works by using the short cut key.

    Nope...it's not working. It does work from another application just not Word. Must be a problem with Word and the transitional language used here.

    I was able to C & P using the mouse from my email though.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I like your quote at the end of your message.
