In my frustration with the computer this morning, I have managed to stuff up my email system. it now shows the space bar symble and instead of a space gives a dot. I have done the undo thing and still cannot fix it.
what have I pressed in error and how do I fix it please.

Using Outlook if that is of any help.

Thanks

Jan, what shows the symbol - do you mean the underscore? _ instead of . in your email address? In which bit of the system are you working to stuff it up?

Hi,

its in the body of the email and no, not the underscore. its the lP type looking thing and instead of a space, puts a dot. I know I have obviously hit a button I should not have in my frustration this morning, but have tried all sorts of things to get rid of it but to no avail at this stage.

For those confused, ronnie uses MS Word to compose emails.
Within word, there is an advanced feature called "Show Paragraph Marks", which helps you with the formatting. If you want it.

If you don't want it, ctrl + * will turn it off again. And on again...

Most installations of MS Outlook come preset with MS Word being the editor. There is no reason for one to be used over the other, MSOutlook editor is simple and fast, MSWord is a more powerful editor.
A simple settings change will swap between the two. I just can't find it at the moment.

version 7 here but one good thing about Eudora is that all the files can be transferred to another computer without having to set it up again
