Thanx for the info. What prompted my post was a notice I got within the
last 2 or 3 weeks that the port for OS/2 had been updated. (So you were
_not_ the PINE user I was thinking of . . . . ) I guess I'm wondering
why I might want to consider using this, as opposed to the email client
in Netscape (mediocre but convenient), or the various standalone email
programs for OS/2, if I decided to make a change.
