Agreed. I believe I said that I send mine in plain text and one of the
things I like about Pegasus is that it defaults to plain text. I have a
Unix machine (Linux actually, same thing only different) in my
home network, and when I read mail on it I use elm (less resource-
intensive than pine), so I'm well familiar with what you describe. I'm
trying to push the Pegasus people to either do a port to Linux/Unix
or let me do it, but so far they won't budge. Oh well.
