provided for Microsoft MS-DOS, and Microsoft Windows (including Windows
3.x, Windows 95/98/Me and Windows NT/2000/XP), as well as other
platforms by emulation (e.g., IBM OS/2). Native language support has
included Catalan, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Polish,

be answered by volunteer members of the Pegasus Mail Support Team.

to a mailing list.)
General Usenet "netiquette" guidelines as posted in
news.announce.newusers and news.answers shall apply to this newsgroup.
In particular, participants are asked to show courtesy and respect for
other participants, and to avoid the use of offensive language,
excessive quoting, or long signature blocks. Participants are
encouraged to use descriptive Subjects (e.g., "Mac PMail can't access
mail server" rather than just "Help").

The use of e-mail addresses from articles posted to this group for the
purpose of sending junk (mass unsolicited) e-mail or for compiling a

In the absence of moderation, prohibitions can, of course, only be
enforced by the collective will of the group and/or by after-the-fact
complaints to the offender's service provider. Nevertheless, it is
hoped that this charter will help in getting complaints resolved. The
copyright holder of Pegasus Mail (currently David Harris) shall be the
