There’s a management team at Am I paying them? Are they going to shut down my email? Are they the ones secretly running my life? Maybe I should open up the zip file and find out!

Errrr… no.

Why not use thunderbird?

For that matter, add OpenOffice, too.

I got something like this for too. Yeah, I’ll go and put in that password and get that virus. 🙂 DURRR 🙂 Right… 🙂

I use pine too. I’m all for progress, but when it comes to email, I just want text. No embedded pictures. No flash animation. Just text. Pine suffices.

Thanks for the warning, Andy. I’ll check out asap before funneling it all into Outlook. I’ve already went through enough fun upgrading Norton AntiVirus to the 2004 version, and two full scans, not counting the MyDoom removal tool last night. Not gonna fall for this one.

Wow. It’s been a while since I used PINE. (I keep getting this urge to say, PINE is not ELM. There, I’ve said it.)

Well, I’ve got you all beat. I’ve, at times, opened up the RFC for the protocol and done email by hand over a raw connection.

(And like Mr. Klortho, I’ve done (and still do actually) done plenty of raw SMTP by hand…)
