    semi-colon

    i have found it helpful to put a semi-colon after each name in the "to" line because occasionally the auto-fill will add to what i had written.

    examples:

    i want to send something to "bear" - if i was not paing attention, the message might have gone to "bears"

    "susie" might end up going to "susiesunshine"

    i have started to tack on the semi- colon even if i am sending a pm to just one person.

    a couple of times my pm ended up not where i intended.

    semi colon or colon? probably doesn't matter. on another forum I hit reply and it came to me!!! not sure why to this day. things are messed up here on various problems. doesn't seem easy to fix either.

    I found that just hitting the space bar will stop that auto-fill. It will only complete the word with what "they" thought it should be if I hit "tab".
