ThinkGood,
Have just cleaned it out.
Sorry about that, my monitor failed on me last Sunday morning and I've only just got my system working again.

It's always on sundays, isn't it? Last summer my monitor decided to have a smoke break last summer. one beuatiful sunday morning I switched on my computer and nothing happened. Pushed the Power button again, nothing. Checked Keyboard connection (Apple computers used to have a On/Off key on the keyboard), solid. Though "Sh*t, my computer's gone! Pushed the light switch, ceiling light didn't work. This being a chandelier with 5 bulbs I decided the fuse had blown. Reset the breaker, switched on computer, everything works but the monitor. Dumped it (17" CRT, bought it at the flea market for 25 Euro )

I repaired a monitor a couple of weeks ago that had a flakey power switch. Just a few squirts of contact cleaner spray did the trick. And some touch-ups of cold solder joints with the iron.

So when a monitor fails, that causes e-mail to bounce?

Yep! Makes it quite interesting, doesn't it?

Don't you just love them Chinese monitors!.
I have an HP 17" LCD screen in front of me, that was made in the US.
Can't beat good American workmanship!.
I've had 3 China made monitors blow out on me in 3 years, usually it is the Switch-mode PS Chip that goes.
I'm just sick of it!.
This monitor cost me a dollar or two, but hey, I hope it out-does the other 3 I've had.
All 3 monitors have had a 3.15A ceramic fuse protecting them, but not once has the fuse blown, when the SM chip blew (destructively).

Hey Trumpy, don't you know Murphy's law? An expensive transistor will always blow to protect the $.25 fuse!
