Potato is a DOS program. I use it every day in a DOS box under Win95, and
get 10-50 messages from a remailer that are painlessly and automatically
decrypted and then brought up in my fave editor, Aurora. Posting is more

I don't use OS/2, but since it runs DOS programs, it should run Potato as
easily as Win95 does, I believe. If you want more details of my setup,
