I said do you speak-a my-language? He just smiled and gave me a Messenger update!
A new version of Messenger Pro has been released by R-Comp.
Described by the company as “the premier email solution for RISC OS”, Messenger Pro is a comprehensively featured email client, supporting both POP3 and SMTP (by way of secondary transport applications such as Hermes, itself part of other commercial offerings from R-Comp, or POPStar, a free alternative) as well as IMAP. The software also provides usenet access, with NewsHound being used to fetch and send the messages over NNTP.
