Re: QPopper


Your first mistake was in the header of your e-mail:

To: "Cygwin Applications Mailing List" <cygwin-apps at cygwin dot com>

The cygwin-apps list is a "Cygwin Application Packaging Problems and
Solutions Mailing List", as described at <>.
Any problems with the actual applications should be discussed elsewhere.
You may have better luck on the general Cygwin list, <cygwin at cygwin dot
com>.  For your convenience, I'm redirecting this message there and
setting the Reply-To: appropriately.  Please remove cygwin-apps from any
further discussion in this thread.
