Yesterday one French mailed me complaining, that he started elmo
, but he doesn't know what to do now. He doesn't know how to fetch his mail, and he doesn't know how to send a message. He composed one, but then it got moved to outbox, and not sent. And I think, that he decided not to use it anymore.
What if he had documentation? Fortunately I was browsing freshmeat
, and found a project cone, which is (like elmo
) a text-based mailreader. Cone has one, very nice feature - good documentation. But the main advantage of this documentation is that you don't have to leave the program to browse it.
A great idea hit me today. An online tutorial is a piece of cake. I can prepare a mailbox with messages being chapters, and sections. This special mailbox may be a part of everyone's mailbox. And this is what I'm going to do.
