AmiMessenger is copyright 1996, Robert Cohen.  It is FREEWARE, which means
that no money is allowed to be charged for it.  AmiMessenger may be included
on your PD or Shareware compilations.  It would simply be against the grain
of what Aminet is all about to restrict the distribution, or charge for this
utility.

AmiMessenger is a script generator for the retrieval of Aminet files via
ftpmail.  You need an email account (obviously), a UUencoder (UUxt included
in this archive), and a recent Aminet Index (you can get one as part
AmiMessengers' function) to take advantage of this system.  Complete details
are under the "About" gadget from the main panel.

One note, not covered in the "About" info.  There will be some lag time in
clearing the buffers, mainly when loading other than your first Index file,
and when quitting the program, which may seem like hung or stuck code.
Full Aminet Index files are currently 1.7+ megs, and this takes some system
resources.  Depending on the system you are trying to run this on, this lag
time may be substantial.  Be patient.  Also, if you have less than 2.25 megs
of ram, you should not try to use this utility, at least not with full
aminet index files.  While the program itself only takes about 250K, the
data cache required by a full Index may over tax your ram.

And even if you have a full PPP or SLIP connection, you may find ftpmail
retrieval a time saver.  No waiting for logon, or FTP lag times.  I hope
this program proves to be a convenience to a few of you...  Enjoy
