I don't need to bother Jen with my pc illiteracy. I'm self taught and old which makes me an idiot when it comes to this stuff. If someone else could chime in to let me know where I'm screwing up it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Downloading your messages is just a way to backup old messages that you may want to keep for whatever reason.
