The 130 does NOT run Works. I know, though, that NCU will *export* Notes as
RTF. I've not checked whether one can do the reverse (actually it never
occurred to me that might be something one might want to do).

As for AvailWorks, I believe that has it's own import/export scheme
involving the serial port and the use of a terminal program or some such

Just a question, but what happens to attachments when mailed to a Newt? I'm
thinking that if you can store an e-mail w/ attachment that you send to
yourself on the Newt, you could perhaps forward that e-mail w/o ever
decoding the attachment. A kludge, I admit, but possibly a way of doing
sort of what you want.
