Re: are we really a Mandrake LUG ?

I agree.
And if Debian users don´t want to post to the mailing list that´s their
problem.

Some may know, some may care and there is a lot we can do about it.

Actually, it shows a lot and prejudice itself debases real intelligence.

Mozilla Mail

Hi All,

I am running a RH9 box wioth Mozilla 1.2.1 (as standard ) and I am having difficulty obtaining my Netscape
webmail from the imap server.  I am using the same settings in Mozilla as those specified in Netscape
Navigator 7.2, but the imap mail works fine in NS but not in Mozilla.  Unlike standard webmail, the netscape
imap mail stays open without time limit, and can sort my messages by threads which is very handy.  I do not
have the space on this box to waste on a third browser so I would like to get my NS mail on Mozilla.  Any clues please?

Thanks
Andrew

I never said everything is OK, you said that in the above. You're taking 
things out of context. Actually, appreciating the good in things doesn't 
mean that we don't need to and can't change that which requires change. 
Debian also has it's good and bad points, but I wouldn't go so far as to 
disparage it.

I'm more sure of many things than anyone would realise, and since you don't 
know me you can't for certain say otherwise. Your second question is, of 
course, a general question due to its formulation.

I never said nor implied that you hadn't used Mandrake. Even if you had of 
used Mandrake your assessment is merely your opinion amongst many 
opinions.

Past and present tense makes everything more sense.

Ok, well I can see that this could very easily turn into a flame war, so all
posts will be diverted to the Piss'n'Moan list. If you want to continue
this, make sure you are signed up to piss'n'moan and moan all you like.
