I will. Thanks for all the help. I will have to get back to you maybe 
some time early next week since I have two tests coming up and I need to 
study. And I have a lot of homework! :-( Also I am going to be out of 
town for a night.

Anyway I'll have to get that done. But once thats out of the way I'll 
look at this.

Once again thanks for all this information.

Do I just type in

Do I use sendmail? where do I tell alpine to use fetchmail? And re the 
instructions at the bottom of the screen. Are they right at the bottom? 
Like under everything else so I just hold numb 9 to get there? (I'm 
using speakup)

Thanks for the help.
