	I have now made available my pre-4-snapshot of 2.99.50.
	I do hope I don't need to make changes into the code for
	this; only need to improve documentation ( = manual ).


	Start reading the manual (LaTeX generated PostScript)
	from chapter 2 (Install).

	Then continue following pointers at 2.5.11 about smtpserver
	configuring into chapters 3.4, and 4.1.

	If it does not work with those written instructions, do
	tell me and I will try to improve the presentation.
