I tried sending this message directly to  Filippo Geuna at the
University of Milano (Italy) but the return address
geuna at imiucca.csi.unimi.it was not recognized from my site.  Hence I am
sending it back to the whole group.  Sorry about that.

I do that regularly

I use Eudora which works quite well.  You want to store the downloaded
elm file in the same folder as Eudora (in the system folder).  You CAN
read mail with the arrangement I have to our UNIX system but I have
gotten in trouble doing so & I prefer to do the Mac work locally.

Hope this helps,
