Dear Lindsay,

I entered kmail in the konsole.  Then I attempted to send a test email 
to myself.  It sent it to the Outbox like before.  The Konsole shows my 
initial kmail entry and the next line is my normal Konsole entry:  
steven at Studio25:~$.  If I have to do something to debug, please advise.  
And Thanks again for being so tenatious.  I may get it working someday.

Steven
