I downloaded 3.50 today, and I'm just starting to try it out.  Nice to see
that one of the major problems in 3.31/3.40 has been corrected--I can now
reply to an individual msg within a digest.

The 3.50 archive is very big and takes a long time to download.  After
downloading over a million bytes, I discovered that I needed only five
files from that big package.

Suggestion:  Offer the pgm in different archives.  Keep the full package
archive available for first-time users.  But also make an "upgrade"
archive available containing only PMAIL.EXE, PEGASUS.RSC, PCONFIG.EXE,
PCONFIG.RSC, and GUIDE.EXE.  For those who need the "NDS" version, that
mammoth EXE should be archived separately.

PREBUILD is not often needed--in fact the Guide notes that it should be
used "not routinely".  And the standalone EXE isn't a necessity because
the same functionality is available within Pegasus Mail.  But, as long as
the EXE does exist, why not let it accept a parameter to run in standalone
mode on a networked computer?

For the most part, 3.50 was pretty good about honoring my personal
settings, but I discovered after sending a couple of msgs that the "keep a
copy" setting had been turned off.

The choice of color for quoted text is a nice touch.  But why only quoted
text?  Why not make the normal text color similarly configurable?

Some things haven't changed.

The "Send files" menu option still doesn't work properly.  (I won't turn
off the multiple enclosures option.)

The "Omit headers" option when replying still has the same adverse affect
on any subsequent forwarded (with edit) msgs.

The new ability to forward an individual msg from a digest comes with a
price tag:  I must previously have forwarded (or attempted to forward) a
non-digest msg and set the "Edit before sending" to Y.

The problem that I previously reported in May concerning attached files in
saved sessions has not been fixed.  If I attach a file, and then press KS
to save my draft, I can look at the PMO file and see that my attached file
is referenced.  I can reopen the draft and press F7, and I will see my
attached file still listed.  But when I send the msg, the MSG does not
contain the attachment.
