Thanks, Neal, I did just what you did, but since I have not worked
much with the batch file parameters, I decided to use choice.com and
here is how my working pmail.bat file looks like now:

@echo off
cls
echo.
echo A for 1NationOnline Mail
echo B for FreeWWWeb Mail
echo C for Aristotle Mail
echo.
choice /c:abc Choose which mail service to use....
if errorlevel 3 goto Aristotle
if errorlevel 2 goto FreeWWWeb
if errorlevel 1 goto 1NationOnline

:Aristotle
copy c:\internet\pegasus\pm1.cfg c:\internet\pegasus\pmail.cfg
copy c:\internet\pegasus\pmgate.ari c:\internet\pegasus\pmgate.sys
set [log in to unmask]
pmail.exe
set PMUSER=
copy c:\internet\pegasus\pmail.cfg c:\internet\pegasus\pm1.cfg
copy c:\internet\pegasus\pmgate.sys c:\internet\pegasus\pmgate.ari
goto end

:FreeWWWeb
copy c:\internet\pegasus\pm2.cfg c:\internet\pegasus\pmail.cfg
copy c:\internet\pegasus\pmgate.fre c:\internet\pegasus\pmgate.sys
set [log in to unmask]
pmail.exe
copy c:\internet\pegasus\pmail.cfg c:\internet\pegasus\pm2.cfg
copy c:\internet\pegasus\pmgate.sys c:\internet\pegasus\pmgate.fre
set PMUSER=
goto end

:1NationOnline
copy c:\internet\pegasus\pm3.cfg c:\internet\pegasus\pmail.cfg
copy c:\internet\pegasus\pmgate.nol c:\internet\pegasus\pmgate.sys
set [log in to unmask]
pmail.exe
copy c:\internet\pegasus\pmail.cfg c:\internet\pegasus\pm3.cfg
copy c:\internet\pegasus\pmgate.sys c:\internet\pegasus\pmgate.nol
set PMUSER=
goto end

:end

I also launch Pegasus from inside Arachne with an .ook batch file and
I used the appropriate subsections of this batch file for the
appropriate .ook file there and it seems to work fine that way also.
My thanks to you Neal as well as to the other PM-DOS listers who
responded to my question. Thanks to you all.

Regards,
Dale Mentzer
