Well, I've cooled down a bit. In my example, sendmail and fetchmail
never let my down, they simply didn't work until proper configured.
Again, there were other problems around, linux was solveable.
For my M$ problem, as I heared today, I should have installed the
IE4.1SP1 package, that includes outlook express, a lean mail client.
this should be easier to configure that outlook or exchange. they are
unlogical, hidden and confused to set up. My exchange client at work
sends a hack of idiotic data behind every message. There is no known way
to stop this. consequently I cannot access this list from work, I would
be *fryed* by the list members.
After refusing to do anything with M$ (for obvious reasons) three years
ago, and still sticking to 3.11 at work, (just changing to NT) I am not
up to date with M$.
Win 3.11 spoiled many days. I called it a good day, when there was a
protection fault. Later, I changed the messages for the blue screens,
your system is in a perfect working order.
it is hanging. say goodby to your data.
pull the plug.

It realy is. I have people around that *love* and *praise* M$ and their
buisyness strategies. For fun, I hold against with *force*.

Yes it does. The older version, (Spreadshead) reminded me -functionally-
to Excel 3.0, particulary on the search (database) functions. In the
end, I dropped it for SO4.0. But: Applix Files can be edited with vi or
whatever you choose, it's text!

Yes, and I hope it won't turn into a nightmare. There are still more to
egcs compiler and the 2.2.x kernels, as soon as these are officially
released. (Any rough dates for that??)

Thanks. Had a better day today. ;-)
