Hi Bob,

Yes, I agree! I once had Outlook Express as well.  I do miss it!!
With Thunderbird now at v102.2.0 I kinda wish that it would remain at
what it is for a long time.  I only use Email and Newsgroups.  All the
OTHER STUFF I have no need for.  I was very frustrated and stressed when
this previous updated version caused what it did.

Hours and Hours of wasted time trying to figure it out what happened.
