You got it! My bookmark only excludes section 5. I imagine that either you or Sidney taught me that trick, but as senility sets in...

Bound to have been Sidney. Half of what I know I learned from him!

I like that feature, because if I don't have time to work through all the unread threads in one sitting, I don't lose them when I have to log out.

Should help me get to bed at a more reasonable hour! (She says as the clock ticks up to 1 a.m. . . .)

TapCis is probably, I fear, dead but I enjoyed using it for many years till a month or so ago so I decided to inquire. My ancient computer wouldn't support current AT&T DSL so I got one with XP in one partition and DOS in another.

I liked the offline reader aspect of TapCis, not to limit connect time but rather to write a message, do other tasks, and then review the message before sending it.

Thanks for the memories and any suggestions.

Tapcis should still work in your DOS partition (and in fact even in Windows) but only over a dial-up connection, Bob. If you're using your DSL connection, Tapcis would need to ride a TCP/IP connection and for that you'd need (at a minimum) additional software that I'm not sure still exists.

What I did was convert over to Eudora; others are using Thunderbird. But any good email program these days will do pretty much what you want it to do.

Thank You, Judy.

I will explore Eudora and Thunderbird via Google. Support from my computer supplier, despite recommendations, has been poor. Haven't found a consultant.

Am still on dialup but, hopefully, not for long. AT&T technician spent from before 10:00 am till after 3:00 pm and then declared the underground lines fairly close to our house have degraded in the forty years we have been here. Are OK for voice but not for DSL or TV. They will replace and try again in two weeks.

It isn't terribly hard to get up and running, Bob. Getting used to the new format takes a little while, but once you get used to it, it works just fine.
