    Yes. 25 at the moment, with hacked WM in Win 7. WMUTIL "Rebuild Database"
    usually
    cleans them up for me.

    "Ghost messages" are a result of OE not being coded to the proper
    Usenet standards. Other newsreaders do not have this problem.

    Microsoft is the KEEPER and DEFINER of the standard.

    No ghosts - just old farts!

    It is a good thing PA Bear plonked me a long time ago so he will not
    see my messages.

    Never saw anything even remotely similar, whatever "ghost" messages means.
    XP Pro SP3 OE6 IE8 now; used to be IE6/OE6. Sounds like some sort of
    corruption or malware.
