Hey Everyone

I have a computer running XP and using Outlook Express 6. My problem is that if I forward an email from the program, it does not dissapear from the screen, the icon in the inbox does not show the forward arrow and it appears that the email never is sent. I have to manually close out of the email to remove it from the screen. If I check the sent folder, it shows that it has been sent and in testing I can receive the email. I have checked all the send settings under options and everything looks like other machines. Any ideas?
