Reply "SENDS" before I begin typing
#1
For about the last month, I click on 'reply' and it goes immediately before I type anything.  It sometimes does it twice in succession so, instead of having it happen again, I will choose 'forward' and then type and send my reply.

Some times, immediately after I send an e-mail, a brand new window pops up ready for me to start something new.  That's not a big deal, but it is strange.

Very strange.
have you checked if any key on your keyboard has stuck?

I don't believe so.  The issue is sporatic.  I don't even touch a key; I just put the cursor on "reply" so I can then begin to type my reply....but don't get a chance to; it just 'sends.'

I've searched a lot about this issue, not found anything.
If it was a known issue, for sure there would be other having that.

Please do the following:
Try reisntalling
Let me know if you use a scree reader software

the only way that oe can send message from reply windows, is pressing the reply button OR 'Alt' + 'S' keys on keyboard.
Please check with another keyboard.

I don't use a screen reader.

I know that the only way to send a reply is to click on 'reply' which is the first thing in the process of creating a 'reply' message.  That shouldn't 'send' until the reply has been typed and then click on "SEND".

try compacting your email folders:
File>Folder>Compact all folders
(Make a backup first)

I'm prompted to do that routinely and do so. That's a feature in OE that I've used for years.

If issue still nor resolved, i suggest you to create new blank identity. Create new identity and create there your account. Try to send from new identity to check if issue happens there also.

I tried the Restore OE in Windows 10....and it wouldn't work.  So, I tried to Download OE and it said it was downloading, but I finally cancelled it after about 1 1/2 hours when it said it was still downloading.

Same problem of replying when I click on 'reply'.  It just goes before I can type anything.  Happened at least 4 times today.  Also, sometimes when I read an e-mail and delete it, it deletes another one with it.  I then have to check it in the deleted folder.

So, how can I reinstall OE?

No answer to above question. Do I activate the Restore Tool....or do a new install with a code? I'm probably running out of valid codes. The problem with 'replying' without actually typing anything and 'sending' is still happening frequently. People are saying, "Why did you send this back to me with no comments?"
