Windows 95 and up has a TCP/IP stack built in, but Windows 3.1 does 
not. As far as I know, the only practical winsock for Windows 3.1 is 
the shareware Trumpet Winsock. But I thought the following from the 
alt.winsock FAQ (http://www.faqs.org/faqs/windows/winsock-faq/) might 
help explain things:

-------- begin excerpt --------
WINSOCK.DLL actually acts as a "layer" between your WinSock 
   applications and your TCP/IP stack.  Your WinSock applications tell 
   WINSOCK.DLL what to do, WINSOCK.DLL translates these commands to your 
   TCP/IP stack, and your TCP/IP stack passes them on to the Internet!

   But the most important thing for you to remember about WINSOCK.DLL is 
   that the WINSOCK.DLL you're using must match the version of TCP/IP 
   that you're running. Don't assume that because all WinSocks are called 
   WINSOCK.DLL that they're all the same--they're not. So, for example, 
   if I'm using Microsoft's TCP/IP, I can't use Trumpet Winsock.
----------  end excerpt --------------

Pegasus Mail is freeware. If your copy is incomplete, just go to 
www.pmail.com and download the latest 16-bit version, which is 3.12b. 
I've been using Pegasus Mail for years.
