Very special thanks go out to Martin Forsse'n (firstname.lastname@example.org) for authoring the TkRat mail user agent.
Greetings go out to the North Texas Linux User's Group in Dallas, TX, for whom I originally wrote this document back in early 1998. Today no greetings go out to any user groups, as I live in the moutains of East Tennessee, where I believe I am the only Linux user (or computer user, for that matter) within 50 miles.
Also of note: Nic Bernstein has forked the TkRat code to create a mailer called Postilion. It looks like a great mailer with a lot of new features that aren't in TkRat, but, nevertheless, I continue to use TkRat.
