I think there is a slight misunderstanding. The point of mentioned texts was that once you have TCP/IP conectivity and a telnet client it is possible to (manually) use it for sending emails etc. However, once you have that - nothing stops you from writing specialized clients for those protocols. > Start of message from Adam Dunkels (...) Adam is wrong at one point - IP number of C64 is not hardcoded. It may be given explicitly for SLIP/PPP or assigned by PPP server. Oh, and there is popclient program in the latest LUnix release - a simple POP3 mail reader. There is one more approach: 64net/2 server gives access not only to host PC filesystem and disk images, but also has a network device. This code lies there unfinished but for start I have written a mailer in BASIC. Once wedge is loaded it is as simple as OPEN1,10,1,"3:/server/services/smtp,n" and then using PRINT# and INPUT#,GET# to exchange data. http://sourceforge.net/projecst/c64net/ (browse CVS->wedge->mailsend) ytm Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
