This might actually be my fault, Pegasus dumps all of the addresses
in the To: line, and I pick the ones I want, this is a setting, that
I set up on it, because some programs (Outlook) don't always set the
Reply-To address properly. On this one, I took out your email
address, and just left the group. This is because I hate getting
multiple copies of the same message, but sometimes I forget to select
the right address, and multiple copies go out.

Look at the export possibilities, some programs will let you export
the message in text format, then you can import it back from text
into another programs format.

Gee, haven't you ever heard of compression? If I am sending someone
a bunch of files, I use a compression program, then make sure the
client has a program that can decompress them. I usually use one of
the free ones, then either give the client a copy, or make a self-
extracting .exe

This is why I use Pegasus, it doesn't run Outlook programs either.
Actually the feature I like best, Pegasus allows me to drop the
connection in the middle of a reply. Sometimes I think I will make a
short reply, but it gets longer, or I get interupted, and since I
don't want to block the line for too long, I can hit the off-line
option, and drop the connection.
