which software is used to send mail to 'Methods & Reagents'. For Windows
based software Eudora and Pegasus are the favourites - with Eudora a clear
One reason I posed the question was to assess which package we should use -
Eudora and Pegasus were the main contendors then and still are! We will
probably use Eudora (PRO version when we can afford it!) - could anyone say
how well Eudora can 'talk' to Pegasus? Will each readily read documents sent
from the other? without corruption and including attachments?

Finally, the very best solution to some of our requirements would be to type a
document into Wordperfect or gaphic file into CorelDraw and then Email direct
from within the Wordprocessor. Likewise receive documents directly into the
wordprocessor the Email reader therefore becomes transparent to the user.

Again, many thanks for your trouble
