Re: An idea about mail

Just out of curiousity... what is 'masquerading'?  where can i read about

another question... this is a serious newbie thing...
when i put './' infront of a file name, (for example ./WMprefs) what am i
doing?  does the './' have a special (or not special) name?

I appologize for putting this here, i'm not into one of the IRC's yet, i'll
have to look into finding one for support. (kinda sounds like an Alcoholics
Anonymous group (-; )
