I am simply looking for a DOS based e-mail client that I can run on an NT 4.0 server. It must be a dos client because I will be telneting onto the machine and want to check my e-mail.

Thank you

With all due respect.... you will not find a DOS email package for NT. This is a oxymoron.

The good news is, NT will not care what is going on with the client side, MAC, DOS, Win 3.x, Win 9.x, Sun Solaris, Linux, or even Commodore, if you can find a POP package for a Commodore... (you probably can).

Please do not confuse a client and a server. If your server package puts out a common protocol, like POP or FTP, etc.... and you have a client side that does, POP, FTP, etc. (whatever you need) you are good to go....

In other words, match protocols, not O/S's.

Another question (okay 2 questions) might be:  which machine is the email on and which machine are you going to fun the DOS program on?

Okay, I know, unfair to comment and try to answer a question all in one night but here goes anyway.

PC Pine is probably your answer.  Pine is renown on Unix machines and has a port to DOS.  Find out all about it at:

Hello jrlb... Interesting that we are both in Seattle... Prehaps we can start a off-this-list conservation.... I am a relatively old fart in this game (pre-MS) and work the folks across the pond from time to time... I have not updated my profile here in sometime, but you will still get concept of the role I play in this circus called computers.

Sorry airborne to intrude here! It was a happenstance moment.

Best to both,
tim
