13 Can I use multiple names from the address book?
14 </title>
15 <description>
16 <p>
17 Yes. The address book search will display all matches for the
18 search criteria entered in the search box. If 10 names are displayed
19 any combination may be selected for either the <B>To:</B> or <B>CC:</B>
20 fields. All selected addresses will be inserted into the proper
21 field when the Use Address button is pressed.

28 Can I add names directly to the address book from a email?
29 </title>
30 <description>
31 <p>
32 No. At this time you cannot add names directly from a received email
33 to the address book. You can, however, right click on the address and
34 save it to the clipboard and paste this into the address book. Try
35 not to be disappointed. SquirrelMail is under continual development
36 and this might be included in the future in one form or another.

55 What is webmail?
56 </title>
57 <description>
58 <p>
59 In SquirrelMail's case it gives you access through the IMAP protocol
60 to your email account. This means that you don't have to figure out how
61 to setup someone else's stuff just to check your mail.

68 Where can I use this webmail?
69 </title>
70 <description>
71 <p>
72 Any where there is a browser available.
73 Wireless access (WAP/WML) is not on the drawing board at this time though.

80 Why use webmail instead of a regular email client?
81 </title>
82 <description>
83 <p>
84 It is doubtful that webmail will ever be a complete substitute for
85 a regular email client. But hey, who knows? Anyway, If you ever
86 were at a friend's house, on a trip, at home or work and away from
87 your computer and wanted to check your mail you already know why.
88 Because it is a huge hassle to set your mail up on their computer
89 and then delete it again. SquirrelMail is designed to be a supplement
90 to your normal email client.

97 How does this stuff work?
98 </title>
99 <description>
100 <p>
101 SquirrelMail uses the IMAP protocol, info on it can be found
102 <A HREF=""/>here</A>. The program also uses
103 its own IMAP functions, not those built in to PHP4. This won't
104 matter to anybody except those responsible for installing it,
105 but trust us when we say they appreciate it.
