I realize that, but it kind of defeats the object of having a mail
account on dogma (apart from having a FreeBSD mail address). Anyway,
Lee has now set up a POP3 server. Thanks Lee.

BTW Ben, I've installed par(1) which you recommended. Does a good
job of re-formatting quoted text in e-mails, but could you send me
details of how you have the PARINIT envar setup, and what arguments
you use when formatting e-mails as I've found a couple of situations
in which it screws up. e.g.

Both with & without the default PARINIT doing ``!}par 70q'' on

gives the following (the ``1'' on the second line has been left
and the rest of the line concatenated with the first line):

I've spent quite some time reading the manpage, but can't work out
how to fix it.
