Messenger Pro is a versatile Email and News application.
Recommended for email as no Windoze nasties will effect RISC OS machines.
And until recently I used this for USENET access for reading the comp.sys.acorn News Groups.
This only stopped as my ISP has stopped free access to USENET, so I need to find another server.
This is the program Info dialogue giving details of Program name,
it's purpose(obvious), Author's and version number.
This option lets multiple users access the program by selecting their respective
user name. This is a single user machine so it's set for the Classic Acorn website.
The Utilities option displays various commonly used functions.
This is Messsenger Pro's main window. It shows three main folders for Incomming Mail,
ie unread, Sent Mail and Sent News. The two folders below are user created for storing
mail or messages in a location of your choice for archive. So the Classic Acorn folder
contains sixteen messages of which none are un-read.
This option shows that the Incomming Mail folder will be displayed in the
Main Groups list. Essential really or you dont know if you got any mail.
This button shows subscribed and unsubscribed newsgroups.
The folders button shows active and dormant folders.
Identical in looks to Main Groups but this section is used for storing or Archiving
Mail and news thta is rarely looked at. So it's really a back up source.
The Search Messages tool is used to search a group by Body, Subject or Sender etc.
Address Book is self explanatory, ie displayed by names which relate to email's
Again this is the window used for adding a new contact to your address book.
A Find and Replace window for changing details on people in the address book.
This is the main blank email window. As with any email client you add who you are
sending to, if you wish to CC the mail, and subject. Also where the message will be
stored after sending. There is also a spell check button at the top.
This window shows any recently recieved email that has not been read.
This window shows and email or news that is waiting to be sent either on the press
of the transfere news/mail buttons or at the pre-set automated time interval.
The Status window shows what the machine is currently doing ie downloading news, organising or deleting old outdated news etc, with a progress bar indicator.
The Waste Basket is again self explanatory, ie deleted mail etc.
