cg> * How can I prevent this happening ?

cg> * Am I right that the unintended mode is set for the rest of the file-list
once it is detected in the first 'bad argument' of: Mail.Send  <list of
files> ?
In that case I should put files that may be non-ascii at the end of the
of: Mail.Send  <list of files> ?

cg> *  Do any readers know what the 2 possible conditions are that  set
the "send AsciiCoder-compression-attatchment-mode" ?
Ie. what are conditions: MIME.EncAsciiCoder, MIME.EncAsciiCoderC ?

Sorry Chris but I have no significant insights to these 

A few months ago I noticed what appeared to be an 
inconsistency between the implementation of Mail.Send ^
and a pertinent comment, and suggested a correction to
Pieter M.  Also, I have been unable to have messages
automatically deleted from the POP server after 
retrieval with the Mail.Panel in PC Native 05.01.2003

When time is available for Oberon source texts, I try 
to direct the effort to PPP.  Outside of PPP, the
best I can do is to report concerns as clearly as 
possible and hope that they are addressed in a future

Beyond these "repair issues" I have an idea for the 
input interface to implement and have never made 
any real progress with the driver for the old 
Hercules video.

There is never enough time for everything we want to
