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?
