NTLK Downloading/E-mailing programs (Icons) to the newton

I have read in the manual for my MP2K (PDF version, thanks to all) that you
can Email programs (icons) to a Newton, I have also seen on the list that
you can download them. I have just a bare bones system with the In/Out box
and Nethopper , No Games either :-( . Is it possible to get software in via
either of these programs ?

The reason I ask is I do not yet have a serial dongle and am desperate to
try my network card in the Newt.

I also read in the manual that the Newton can dial up a computer and dock
over the modem. With Autodock on. When I put my modem card in, the Newt
asks me what computer to dial up to dock. Is this possible or is it a
incomplete feature (Like IrDA) . As I said before I just want to get my
Ethernet driver on this thing.
