The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, February 12.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   IMP - A Web-based E-mail Solution Using Open Source Tools

   Companies are being challenged daily by their employees to provide 
   access to company information from various locations. E-mail is one
   such source of information and can be accessed using Web-based tools.
   This presentation will focus on IMP. IMP is the Internet Messaging 
   Program (formerly, among other things, the IMAP webMail Program), a
   web mail system and a component of the Horde project. IMP offers most
   of the features users have come to expect from their conventional mail
   programs, including attachments, spell-check, address books, multiple
   folders, and multiple-language support. John Schulz, from Pollard
   Banknote Ltd., is back to present this month's topic.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30 PM on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our new meeting location: The IBM offices, at 400 Ellice
   Ave. (between Edmonton and Kennedy). When you arrive, you will have to
   sign in at the reception desk, and then wait for someone to take you
   (in groups) to the meeting room. Please try to arrive by about 7:15
   PM, so the meeting can start promptly at 7:30 PM. Don't be late, or
   you may not get in.

   Limited parking is available for free on the street, or in a lot
   across Ellice from IBM, for $1.00 for the evening. Indoor parking is
   also available nearby, at Portage Place, for $2.00 for the evening.

Also note that MUUG maintains two mailing lists, called "muug-announce"
and "roundtable".  If you're not already on these lists, we encourage you
to subscribe now:


The "muug-announce" list is used for monthly meeting announcements (such
as this one) as well as other important announcements of interest to MUUG

The "rountable" list is meant to be a forum for follow-ups to topics
discussed at the meetings, or for round-table-style discussion on other
topics that come up between meetings.  Of course, for this to be effective,
we need to reach a certain critical mass.  So, please subscribe, and stay
