Sorry to post this here folks, but I can't seem to send this to
the right address. Please put your mailing address in your signature.
The From: address on top of your message isn't always accurate.
I saw your question about filtering your mail. Maybe I didn't quite
understand, but the directions I gave were for the non-HP version of
Elm. The HP version of Elm doesn't have the filter command.
As I stated before, you can use any mail program you want with the
filter command (even the HP version of Elm) as long as your system
mailer (usually sendmail on Unix) understands how to use the .forward
If you have an HP machine, you might want to ask your system administrator
to download the USENET version of Elm anyway. Most SA's who work on
HPs do so anyway since the non-HP version of Elm is more full featured
and less bug ridden.
If you're good at programming shell scripts (awk, grep, sed) or
Perl, you can easily write your own filter program. Granted it may
not be quite as flexable as the Elm's filter command, but it'll work.
If you still need those directions, let me know, and I will resend them
