I have no issues  using gmail now.  since I am only either doing it from 
shellworld, or  in the case of my office, dreamhost,  my direction is fine 
Was late last night when I wrote, will flesh out this one time use of 
alpine  as Larry  discusses.
Personally i do not care for alpine, but my use is based on dreamhost, 
who may  not fully  understand the program  themselves, smiles.
Hopefully  the person scamming this list looking for a date will not add 
to the amusement...I do not do girls.
