Okay. I'm probably the last person still using Microsoft Mail. It works
okay, but I can't find any information about security holes (or lack of
them) in this program, and it does not include the headers in messages
which I forward, so it's no good for reporting spam.

Sellam, I tried Pegasus v4 and the windows kept popping up in really odd
locations and sizes. It also has *way* more bells and whistles than I

Doc, I tried Pine, but the Win9x version requires that I be on-line to read
email. I want to send/receive, logoff, and then read and compose new mail.
 Other than that, it looks okay.

Can some one suggest a simple offline email handler that isn't giving that
"come hither" look to every Trojan on earth? And that's free?
