Hi again,

Another snippet. In the 200LX manual
it says (p. 29-2):

  Interactive Connection, which is a continuous connection to your
  Post Office that you can make if your Post Office meets certain
  conditions---ask your Post Office Administrator.

Have searched the cc:Mail documentation I have access to for
"interactive" without finding anything.

What are these conditions?
