Messenger Pro Email and News Application

Messenger Pro is a versatile Email and News application.
Recommended for email as no Windoze nasties will effect RISC OS machines.
And until recently I used this for USENET access for reading the comp.sys.acorn News Groups.
This only stopped as my ISP has stopped free access to USENET, so I need to find another server.

This is Messsenger Pro's main window. It shows three main folders for Incomming Mail,
ie unread, Sent Mail and Sent News. The two folders below are user created for storing
mail or messages in a location of your choice for archive. So the Classic Acorn folder
contains sixteen messages of which none are un-read.
