[gopher] Re: get binary files using gopher server

I was using the www4email... severs to get binary files, no gopher files,
but, as I did tell you before, these servers are defunct

In recent years, Gopher has fallen in popularity and most of the
gophermail servers have closed down. But still there is quite a
bit of information available on gopher servers, and a few working
gophermail servers.

Although not every item on every menu will be accessible by
"gophermail", you'll still find plenty of interesting things using this
technique. .

The two emails you sent me are ok, that=B4s what I looking for. But...are
these emails working yet?
Now,  I need the help files from the two emails you sent me
Thanks a lot for you help, friend
