That's an automatic reply - I also got it once although IMO my quoting
style is 100% Usenet compatible, which annoyed me a bit.
A little trick: Remove the quoting characters from quoted empty lines...

Phew - fortunately I've been doing that for a few weeks ;)...

A suggestion for Calmira: What about including a user interface for
WinLink in Calmira? This little utility (winlink.zip, 40 KB, freeware)
allows starting Windows apps from the DOS box without well-known
prefixes like "start", redirecting the print output of DOS programs to
the Windows driver and other interesting stuff, however, win_link.exe
must run in order for this to work (obviously it uses the functions of
its win_ipc.386 VxD then). Couldn't the functionality of win_link.exe be
integrated into Calmira? The complete source code of the program can be
found in a book called "Writing Windows Virtual Device Drivers". Maybe
someone could ask the author (David Thielen, IIRC I got the program from
www.thielen.com) for the source code - the thing is more than 5 years
old now, and I doubt the book is still available...
