Bron,

Wow! That explains a lot! The user currently has about 40 tags she made 
to organize her email for current projects, and she has been using this 
practice for over 3 years!

I'm not sure if we'll attempt the repair as you suggested. Probably just 
abandon using tags and the user will come up with a new way of 
organizing her email. I will forewarn other users who may think this is 
a good method of organizing.

Thanks again for your knowledge and patience on this! All very helpful 
and interesting!

Best wishes!
