    A wee while ago, you showed me how to highlight names with colour. Are you
    able to tell me please, where the list of these is kept? Am I able to
    delete them all in one go?

    Many thanks for any help:)

    As I will you :))

    Those thing that Dave explained work fine, but I just wondered if there was
    a file with those options <addresses?> saved to it... as it were:)

    In the early days of using that option, I wasn't specific enough about that
    <one> person and others got caught up in it. Changing the colour back to
    default, doesn't always work. Not sure what I am doing wrong.

    As far as I know there is no separate list of coloured posters ( that doesn't sound
    right , but you know what I mean).
    I think each post is tagged to be coloured or not (default colour).

    Oi do, oi do:)

    No, it is the poster who is tagged to be coloured. For example, I have
    Grenau coloured pink. Each time she posts, that post is highlighted pink.
    It stands out from other posts and therefore will not be missed. If she
    posted in another group, her posts would still appear in pink. As I said
    earlier, I was careless when adding posters to that list. I have realised I
    must add the whole email* as shown or others who have similar emails, will
    be caught up in it, and they too will appear in pink. I suspect there must
    be some kind of list of those to whom I have designated a colour, since it
    acts over all newsgroups.

    *or that which purports to be an address. In your case I would add
    <Here@Home.com>

    Why don't you just use the name instead of the email address?
    To have your posts coloured I would type in 'Ophelia' in the relevant box.
    If you want to get the name and email address in the correct detail
    right-click a post and select Properties.
    On the Details tab there is a From line.
    You can copy and paste that text.
