RevMail Problem

Thanks Dwayne,
I tried your suggestion, but my version of RR was already up to date.  

The problem does seem to be related to a missing library in the
stand-alone.  Revmail doesn't work from the standalone until I start the
RR development environment.  Whereupon, the mail in the standalone
script behaves impeccably, even if I exit the RR development app.  A
reboot of my PC then restores the standalone to its non-mailing state.
