Copying & pasting to a new message in Outlook Express also works. I use a dial-up modem, and sometimes the page doesn't load properly (this is a common problem in rural areas), and I lose everything I've typed. As most of you know, retyping one of my posts from memory would be like trying to memorize every listing in the phone book; I'm sure it could be done, but I'm not up to the task. I've learned the hard way to copy and paste even my shorter posts of only five or six thousand words.
I use the same method when I quote from another site: Copy the text from the other site to a blank message in OE first, then copy that and paste it to your LP message. This way, if you lose your connection to a proxy server, you can just go back into LotteryPost, re-copy your message from OE and paste it to the reply window, without the HTML code cluttering up your text. When your message is successfully posted, you can safely delete the OE message.
If you're posting links, don't forget to highlight the URL you've typed and click "Add Hyperlink."
Come, Pinky; we must prepare for tomorrow night...
