Wow, $800 for a mail server! That is a lot more than what Wildcat and a
modem cost for the old PSN BBS systems... 
Larry, I remember pledging a check at the meeting. Larry I pledge $30
for the new mail server kuz that's what I can afford right now. 
I'll mail you the check today. 
Regards, Steve Hammond  PSN San Jose
