Tutorial
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.
