myAddressBook and myAddressbook light

......a long time ago....

I did using Arachne Web Browser since two or three years.
One day I had to send some e-mail to invite some friends. So I tried out the maillist-function of arachne.
It needs some time to create a list. I filled out the "TO: " -field with "@mylist" but it didn't work with my provider.I tried out one or two other provider. It didn't work. After all I wrote all single e-mail-address manualy in the "to:"-field. That was stupid/boring. So there grew up an idea in my head.......
It would be very nice to have an 'real' addressbook with some ordinary functions
like...

  • all addresses are sorted alphabetical....

  • selecting one or M O R E addresses and insert them in "TO:"-line of e-mail-composer

  • change,delete or insert one or more addresses just by clicking a button...

One of my hobbies is programing in basic-language. So I thought I should try to write my own addressbook.But it was much hazardous.
At first I tried to understand 'mime.cfg', DGI (DosGatewayInterface): how arachne managage the data-flow. This was difficult for me....

.....today.....
