    Perhaps you mean that all finite verb forms show tense, but not all show aspect. Thus tensed forms can exist without aspect, but aspect forms cannot exist without tense.
    I believe this is exactly what I meant, sir.

    Piscean—I just tried to respond to your latest PM and had exactly the same issue.

    Anyway, no need for you to respond there. I look forward to receiving your email. Thanks.

    Please don't refer to users here as "sir" (or "madam" for that matter). Not only is it unnecessarily formal but it suggests that you assume users are male. That is not always the case.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
