I meant products. In your terms (I believe), the upper bit is part of
the PO and the lower one is "mobile".

(There may have been some evolution, so that in earlier versions the
dialling-in server was a separate thing.)

It's in ROM on the 200LX. When I select Help/About in the app, it says
"cc:Mail mobile". I cannot find anything in the manual, but I am sure
I have read it elsewhere also. I cannot remember seeing "cc:Mail remote"
anywhere, until now.
