Occasionally my Linux box will be down when my Windoze box is up,
and I MUST ask questions on this list using my wife's machine.

However, the suggestion that we use Eudora is probably the correct
thing for any of us that are required use Lose 9x to do. Is that
still free? I remember a freeware 16 bit version I used with MS Lose
3.1. Is it still available?

Dumping mail from an MS Outhouse pseudo-mailer in the cess pool is
your perogative.

Those of you who would ban M$ mailer software must realize that
there are people whose job requires them to use this crappy (MS
Outhouse) software, and who are prevented by company policy from
installing software.

I'm not comfortable with a Member's Only mentality, even if it is a
"M$ users need not apply" attitude.
