>90% sure: A new DIMM behaved the same; i.e., 3 (long)

that's not a problem (AFAIK), albeit it sounds like yer
MUA/MTA is not quite working .....?
what is a mildly annoying point is not using the <Return>
key. this is NOT a criticism, just a request: please keep
yer lines < c.70 characters long! I've reformatted part,
but not all, of yer helpful reply just to show how annoying
long lines can be.
( and there's top-posting, but I'm ignoring that bruhahah! )

was a local parts shop I hadn't checked (the ones I
had checked prior to posting didn't have any 512MiB).
they had one at a decent price; so after c.24hours of
`memtest'ing, it is now in use in the one remaining
