No, I never lost any mail, largely due to the fact that it simply
couldn't download or upload anything as it crashed so quickly!  I can't
remember exactly when this was or what snapshot date the tarball had on
it, but it would've been some time around Christmas.  I see they've got
a more recent tarball available now, but I'd rather hear success stories
"from the field" before I try it again.
