Me too.  I have a simple setup, so haven't really had a need, or opportunity
to delve into it.  I have gleaned a lot from "lurking" and reading all the
tips and solutions.

Again agree.  I'm not a proficient C++ programmer, and find the code quite
scary, but personally would like to see this type of discussion too so by
the time I am proficent, I could be "schooled" in Hylafax.

Any gurus out there who want to lead us newbies?
