Donavan Hall is maintaining the AlphaDocumentation site where lots of great documentation resides:

Personal Note: I suppose that I have dropped off the edge of the world. I've not forgotten Alpha or its documentation. Five months ago I switched careers and have been distracted with the mundanities of life. I don't know how I would do my work without Alpha. Now Alpha is more important to me than ever. Long live Alpha. (1 March 2003)

  • signatures created and selected in Alpha

  • implement Emacs bindings for Mail mode (not strictly necessary, but nice for old Emacs folks)

  • support for "Reply-to:" field

  • auto wrapping of unwrapped text in mail window

  • optional toggle to Setx mode for message reading and composition

  • "Send" hot text in composition window

  • menu item to Trash selected message in browse window

  • internal handling of "Nicknames"
