I agree completely. I rarely have more than two Windows processes
open at once, usually Eudora and Explorer. I feel my overhead at

300 Mhz PC) the time to restart apps from scratch isn't too bad

Note: I was off the Net for 6 weeks, accumulated 3800 messages. Currently
still have about 1000 to go. I am catching up, but will be a week or so
before I become current. (So just how asynch is email anyhow?)
