I do actually think it is due to the restoring of files and folders leading to permissions getting screwed up somehow by not using the proper rou...

Re: Permissions issue '644' SOLVED

"Cosmo."]Oh oh - but not a real surprise. It appears, that you (both?) are playing much with sudo, don't you?

Re: Permissions issue '644'

Cosmo,

Thanks. Just to check I have auto-login enabled and cannot access control panel to change it.

How do I get around that?

Meanwhile I'm printing your instructions out!

Thunderbird - alternatives?

Hello, Well as it says above 'Thunderbird - alternatives?' Does anyone have/use an alternative to T? I ask because I find T is getting 'clunky'.
