      Thanks Steve,

      The seperator seems to do the trick indeed. However, while I have my
      messages seperated I keep dates and authors missing in de message
      index. This is rather inconvenient since I have to read the message
      to see who wrotes it. Is this caused by the type of seperator (I just
      copied yours) or something else?

      I didn't exactly understand your User-Settings file. Why is there a
      distinction between main.dat and inbox? And shouldn't inbox be

      Anyway, I appreciate your help a lot. At least I got this thing
      running for the moment...
