Hmmm, SA/RTF isn't *that* sensitive. It simply SEarches the infile
(current window) for the string literal "{\rtf"; if found, it
assumes that the infile is RTF (switch /NV overrides that
assumption). Given the current thread, I was supposing that the
string "{\rtf" appears literally in the monthly e-mail file that you
were trying to convert. Doesn't it?
