LANMail is a 6K swapping TSR program that allows you to send, receive, and
output LANTastic e-mail. LANMail will use EMS memory if available, or will
create temporary files on the C: drive (or any other drive as specified by
command line parameters. See RUNNING LANMAIL section below).
When the user selects 'R' from the Net-Mail Services menu, the user will
then be shown the header from the first piece of mail in the mailbox. This
header contains who the mail is from, the time and date it was sent, and the
subject or comment attached to the message. If the user wants to read this
message, then he/she should answer 'Y' to "Read this message now [Y,N] ?" Any
other key besides 'Y' will skip to the next message.
After reading the message, the user is presented with the question:
"<<>> (P)rint, (F)orward, (R)eply,
(D)elete, or (N)ext message ? N "
If the user responds with a 'P', the question
"Output to (F)ile, (P)rinter, or (N)one ?"
will appear. Answering 'F' will allow the user to append toe
message to the end of a file, or create a new file if necessary.
Answering 'P' will allow the user to print the message to a
printer, and answering 'N' will abort the output. Regardless of
the response, the message will remain in the user's mailbox.
If the user responds with a 'F' then a free-format message screen will
appear with the contents of the original message already entered.
This message can now be edited as any free-form message could be
(see instructions below).
If the user responds with a 'R' then a blank free-format message screen
will appear. Unlike a forwarded message, the user cannot select
which users to send the reply to, only the person who sent the
message will receive the reply.
If the user responds with a 'D' then the message will be deleted from the
If the user responds with an 'N' or any other key besides P F R D then the
next message header will be displayed.
LANMail lets the user send mail to the message server in two formats: a
free-form format, and a Phone Message format.
The free-format is for messages not suitable for a Phone Message. Free-form
messages can be sent 3 ways: Selecting 'S' from the Net-Mail Services menu,
Forwarding a message after reading, or Replying to a message after reading.
When entering in a free-form message, there are a few editing features
