You have a working Derek system. It's probably great, and it works for
you. Wonderful. But what the developers of breezy slaved over for six
months used OpenOffice and postfix. That's what they debugged and
tested, although I'm sure they also made as much effort as possible to
ensure Abiword and whatever mail program you use worked well too.
