I certainly think that Steve is doing a valuable job very well -- thanks.

I too am very happy with using email on my NeXTstation turbo color  
(NEXTSTEP 3.3 improves on 3.0), apart from delays. I have not tried  
using a newsgroup so far but I am wondering about trying Eloquent on  
the NeXT, it seems to combine email and newsgroup facilities. A  
demo copy is available from
ftp://ftp.cs.orst.edu/software/NeXT/demos/mail/Eloquent.2.01.NIHS.tar.gz

I should be grateful for information from anyone with experience of  
using it.
