I posted a comment for Arp rosemary. 'Went back to "Search" to add another comment about a different rosemary, but what came up in the space was the last personal e-mail I had sent about 15 minutes ago. I have no idea how this could happen. I deleted the e-mail line by line, and again tried to enter "rosemary." When I hit search, part of the e-mail came up again. DH couldn't explain it since I didn't have anything else open.

I went back to the database, repeated the steps, and my e-mail came up again. DH came in and saw it. Told me how it could have still been on my clipboard, but couldn't explain how it could have come up without me copying it. I'm feeling a little creepy.

edited to add: The e-mail did have the word rosemary in it.

I'm not sure how that could have happened. The website has no access to your files like that and can't access other things on your computer unless you do it (or, I suppose, if your computer itself has a virus or malware that is doing this.)

Malware is the only explanation I can think of.

Thanks Dave. I can't imagine how it happened. It's never happened before. DH had run a scan just a couple of days ago for bugs. I'll have him do another. Appreciate the response.

I wouldn't have wanted my e-mail to be one of the "comments" on rosemarys, even though the e-mail addressed rosemarys. We were getting ready to contact a speaker on herbs for garden club later this summer.

Later today, I'll try to enter another comment for one of the rosemarys and see what happens.

I did try to repeat the steps, and no "e-mail' came up this afternoon. Computer has no bugs or bad guys. Guess it'll remain a mystery until it happens again!
