DESCRIPTION

      UMS is an universal mail and news system.

      UMS itself handles the message base. It uses a very fast message base
      with a standarized message format. The access to the message base is
      handled by standarized programmer interface (ums.library). Programmers
      support for C, Modula-2 and Oberon are included. The ums.library
      interface includes an ARexx interface and transparent networking
      support.

      External programs provide the interface to existing networks, e.g.
      Usenet over UUCP. Currently available are converters for UUCP, FIDO,
      Maus and Z-Netz. The standarized interface eases the creation of new
      converters.

      The standarized message format eliminates the need for specialized
      message readers or writers. Currently you can choose between a
      comfortable, MUI based program and old-style program which uses the
      console and the keyboard.

      Included is an Installer script for easy installation.
