OK - thanks. That's the explanation I was hoping for. For me this will be a

huge task. Downloading rpm's, installing software, configuring MUA, MTA,
and now, if I understand correctly, MDA. And I'm sure I will face many
to which I will not know the answer. So, this explanation will be my
guiding light.
