AMIGA ELM v2.0 AVAILABLE FOR FTP
Andreas M. Kirchwitz
AmigaElm is an "Electronic Mail Reader" which allows you to read and
write mail. Normally you'll need a properly installed UUCP package
(eg, AmigaUUCP Plus or Dillon UUCP) to receive and send mails but
AmigaElm is highly configurable so that you can take a mail-folder
from a UNIX box, answer the mail and send the answers back to the
AmigaElm is easy to install and to use. The user interface is very
intuitive and similar to the well-known UNIX-ELM. Beginners can
control all basic functions with menus and some nice GadTools
requesters (only with AmigaOS 2.0+). Usage with AmigaOS 1.3 is
limited to keyboard control. Advanced users can use aliases,
priorized message tagging, various filename-offers when saving
messages and lots of options to configure AmigaElm to fit your
needs. In a system with multiple users AmigaElm allows separate
configuration files for each user.
AmigaElm can be invoked in a special "terminal mode" (all input/output
from/to console). This is useful for running AmigaElm in the current
shell window or over a serial line (eg, with AUX-Handler).
AmigaElm offers basic internal MIME (multimedia mail) functionality
(eg, sending 8-bit-texts and binaries over 7-bit-lines) and supports
"MetaMail" (a full-featured package for handling all kinds of MIME
messages -- also available on AmiNet, see section "HOST NAME") and
"ReqTools" library 2.x (reqtools.library is included).
Changes since version 1:
Bug fixes, slightly enhanced user interface, various new
features (commands, variables, configuration), noticable
speed-up when reading/writing folder, terminal mode (for
use with AUX or CLI), reworked alias-handling.
For normal usage: a properly installed UUCP package.
Can be configured to run without a UUCP package for
processing ready-made mail-folders (eg, from your work
