Not only that but I did it again with this message.  Up in the "to" area I saw
that it was addressed to groop@groo.com and groo-l@newdream.net.  I erased one
of them but failed to notice the scroll bar and was unaware that it was also
addressed to four other people.  So I had to dig it out of my unsent messages
box, copy it,  and try again. So this is why it looks funny.
