I've sometimes been asked about using MultiMail as a standard Internet
email client. Much of the support is there already in the SOUP module, but
it doesn't work directly with a mail spool file yet. However, I just came
up with an interesting kludge for Unix users... Create an "xxuncompress"
script as follows:
ln -s $1 000000.MSG
echo -e "000000\tMail\tmn" > AREAS
With this, you can select any file in standard mailbox format, and read it
in MultiMail. Replies won't work, nor will marking messages as read or
deleting them. I accompanied this with an empty "xxcompress" to supress
the error message when it attempts to save the read markers.
