Pegasus Email program quirk



This is not a T3 message.  It relates to a quirk of Pegasus Mail that
someone (Adrian??) on the list asked Greg about a few months ago.  I
finally wrote Pegasus about it and got this reply.  I hope it is
useful to someone.  I use and like Pegasus and would recommend it to
anyone.  It is a free download, but manuals cost money.  I like it so
much I have sprung for a manual, which has not come yet.
