ADMail - another fine product from Amazing Developments
-------------------------------------------------------

WHAT IT DOES

Pretty much what you'd expect - you can read your mail, you can send mail,
you can add a random signature to your mail, you can sort your mailbox (if
you want), and so on. It's dead good.

WHY IT'S GREAT

Features:

    Sortable mailboxes.
    Use any number of mailboxes.
    Use any text editor at all (but not to read messages with)
    Built-in pager (for reading messages with)
    MIME support (displays quoted-printable and standard messages in pager,
        uses "metamail" for others)
    Can be "dropped in" to any setup which uses UUCP-compatible mailboxes
        (just about anything) - requires no specific Net software.
    Lovely graphical interface, with lots of shortcuts for keyboard freaks.
    Fully configurable button bank.
    Can use default, named, or own public screen.
    Built-in alias and prefs editors.
    Clipboard support.
    File attachments.
    Requires no external support libraries.
    Responsive and friendly author.

WHAT'S NEW

New features in this release include:

    More bug fixes.
    More hot keys.
    QuickHelp for the buttons.
    ROT-13 (Woo.)
    Automatic folding of outgoing To: headers if they get too long.
    BASEDIR command-line option, for those who hate ENV:ADMail.config.
    Can automatically display first unread item in a mailbox on loading.
    You can specify which files to show in the mailbox list.
    More config file options, inevitably :)

    This update release also fixes the broken Install script, the swapped
        buttons bug, and the "no locale.library" problem.

HOW TO USE IT

It requires AmigaOS 2.04 or better to run - you might get away with running
it under 2.0, but no guarantees. Under 2.1 and higher, you get localised
dates. Woo.

It's really configurable, so you just put it somewhere you can run it from
and set up the config file the way you want. Full instructions are in the
doc file. It comes with a spiffy Installer script now, too.

You will, of course, require a mailbox file.

OTHER STUFF

ADMail is shareware - for a mere ten pounds, a copy of the splendiferous
ADMaN mail and newsreading system will be yours. It's exactly like ADMail,
only more so.

Feel free to distribute this, but do NOT make money from the distribution.
Or I won't be your friend any more. Oh, and unless the package is
distributed in a totally unmodified form, I won't speak to you ever
again.

The only commercial distribution sanctioned is the Aminet CD and the CDs
produced by Fred Fish.

Simes.
