    Just curious,

    If I go back and edit one of my posting, does everybody else get another Email notification of the change ???

    Note: I notice MY OWN posting do not show up WHEN I click "New Posts" ??

    Thanks for responses.

    Shortly after original posting, I sort of figured it out for myself.

    1) If I go back and edit one of my posting [that has already triggered an Email distro] nobody is going to see it !!!

    2) I have to tack a "new" posting on the end of the thread to send out Email notifications to others on the thread.

    I don't believe a notification is sent out. Also, unless you're a moderator or admin, you can only edit a post in the first 24 hours.

    John Will,

    Seems like I have edited my posts that are MORE then 24 hours old.

    Just don't think anybody else sees it.

    John,

    You're right -- the first post I can "Edit" would be #4. I never really checked the "dates" before.
