Yes I am aware that my using 4.21c (or later, when it becomes
available) gives me lots of opportunities to manage the situation
much more easily.  In fact, I already make extensive use of the
facility in 4.21 for one user to have many identities.

However, for (almost) the fun of it, I have set myself the challenge
of delivering all my current uses of a PC using a DOS platform. Of
course Pegasus Mail for DOS is my first choice of email program.  And
if anyone has any information it will be very welcome.

Perhaps we have become so addicted to Windoze that we have forgotten
about the alternatives.  On the other hand, who has any results with
PM Win working with Wine?
