Hi, Graham, Isn't it fun to debug a difficult to reproduce problem? ;-) I was trying to create errors last night and this morning, but was only successful once, so it is hard to reproduce the problem while trying different things. It may be totally obvious to you, so apologies in advance, but some of the things I was trying, in order to see where problems may lies, is to have the function print every line, like the following: read-til-dot: func [port buf][ while [(line: system/words/pick port/sub-port 1) <> "."] [ print line insert tail buf line insert tail buf newline ] buf ] Similarly, I telnet-ed to my mail server on port 110 then used something like the following to get to a message 1. It also prints everything up to the single period on a line. USER yourname PASS yourpass LIST RETR 1 If you find the problem, I would certainly be interested in hearing what it is. Good luck. --Scott Jones
