"Click the little question-mark button to return to the master Help Center." What little question-mark button? I don't see one in figure 1-23 or anywhere on the help pages.

Regarding the rebuilding of mailboxes, states "(Highlight several, if you like)" However, when I highlight several, the "Rebuild Mailbox" option is grayed out, so highlighting several really isn't a good option here. Related to this, I'd like to understand better how this works -- for example, I use several mailboxes and sub-mailboxes -- does rebuilding the "parent" mailbox also rebuild the "child" mailbox?
