ok a few people have responded...but I am trying to convince some of the
students here at the University that should no longer use Netscape 2.0 to
mail...many do not see the problem with using it. I told them long ago
that it is easy to set up an html document that would make netscape mail.
The students don't see a problem with this...I would like to know if it
is possible to send attachments...if so then I could set up a demo and
hopefully turn some heads around here...if someone knows if it possible
will they please let me know.
Thanks in advance,
