Never said I thought you where stupid.
There really is not enough info in the original post for me to answer the question though, It would have been helpful if you could have compressed the files into a zip archive and attached them to your post so that I could see the code in context rather than a snippet of just the subroutine.
details on the version of universal Email would have been helpful too, it is unrealistic to expect me to know you are using a version that is 2 versions back from the currant one.
When a new version of an extension comes out, we offer support for a year. It is more than a year since universal Email 3 was released. Universal Email 2 is not a supported product by this time.
I'm happy to help with problems, but I can only give an accurate answer if the presented with full and accurate information.
