Re: UUPC - UUCP for your PC

I've been using UUPC on my UltraLite for a long time, and with happy results.
It was a bit of a trick to set up. A long time ago I put a copy of what was
the current version at that time in the ultralite-archive. I've been meaning
to update that with a current version, complete with config files already
optimized for the UL, but I haven't gotten around to it.

I've also started using PCElm instead of the mailx workalike that comes with
UUPC. PCElm has a fullscreen interface modelled after the public domain
Elm mail program. Getting PCElm and UUPC to play together is even more of
a trick than getting UUPC to work with itself! But, it is possible and the
results are worth the effort.

If others are interested, please send me mail at (rather than
to the mailing list) and I'll put together a package and make it available
to all. Otherwise, I'll probably just work with Doug directly.
