clear this list. This list is limited to the last twenty items you enter
into it. If you keep entering more items, the list gets pushed down to
twenty-one and the twenty-first item is dropped off the list. If it really
bothers you and you are a real neatnic, you can open the file in NoteTab's
home folder called "Notepro.ini"
About 80% to 85% of the way down you will find a section that looks
something like mine below:
ReplaceList_8="C:\DATABASE\Mail\E-mail Prep\Charles Prineas"
You can only delete down to one entry. The NoteTab system will not allow
you to totally delete everything. First change the cound in
SearchListCount=15 to SearchListCount=1
and ReplaceListCount=15 to ReplaceListCount=1. Then delete all of the
items under each of these count items except one and change the count index
on the one you want to keep to 1. Example: I decide that I will keep
SearchList_3="^p^pH=" so I change it to SearchList_1="^p^pH=" and delete
all of the other SearchList items. I decide to keep
ReplaceList_13="RLLLastLine" so I change it to ReplaceList_1="RLLLastLine"
and delete the rest of the ReplaceList items.
Now: AND this is VERY IMPORTANT. You must rename Notepro.ini to
!Notepro.ini (That is right, the new name is the same as the old name
except that it has and exclamation point in front of it). Now shut NoteTab
down and restart it and all of the items will show up as deleted except one
for each that I kept.
You must rename the ini file to !Notepro.ini because NoteTab will overwrite
all of your nice hard work that you just did manually with the current
settings and you will lose it. When you do the rename, NoteTab will not
overwrite that file and when it restarts it normally looks to see if there
is a file called !Notepro.ini and gets its settings from that and deletes
that file and then writes them to Notepro.ini when it shuts down the next
time. If it does not find !Notepro.ini, then it looks for Notepro.ini and
loads its settings from that and if it does not find ANY ini file, it
resets itself to the default and comes up just as if you were running the
program for the first time splash screen Tip of the day and the whole thing
and creates the ini file when you shut it down.
You see why I say it is just not worth while? I hope that Eric will
provide an easier way to do this in version 5.0.

Just thought I'd mentioned it, it seems your system clock is about an
hour faster than the rest of us. That screws up sorting by received
time and date.
