    If you’re willing to give it a test, upgrade back to 3.0 and download “IE Tab” You can then access websites as if you were using IE, which tends to work better with webmail applications I’ve found.You can also set permanent filters on, so particular site always render in IE

    Aaron: I assume you mean IE for Windows. I use a Mac. The Mac version of IE is so long in the tooth that it’s not even compatible with many IE-designed sites anymore … including Northeastern Web mail.
