MR/2 ICE Conversion and Utilities

UUCP/UUPC Interface for OS/2 version(Older utility)

A UUPC/UUPC interface for MR/2 ICE, thanks to Michael Taylor <miket@pcug.org.au>. Makes use of the Custom Mail Driver interface built into MR/2 ICE (v1.2 and greater). File is available as mr2iuucp.zip (42k).

CONVERSIONS!!!

NOTE that conversion utilities here are for MR/2 ICE users only. Users of other mail readers wishing to use these conversions as an intermediate step in converting to "something else" are prohibited from access via this web page. Simply ask yourself, why have users worked so hard to create these scripts for MR/2 ICE, and no other emailer offers the same service? Perhaps, if you'd convert to MR/2 ICE and try it for awhile, you'd understand why.
