Coincidentally, I just today tried SimplyMepis on an old laptop that has 
Debian installed and concluded I should just keep Debian.  Mepis won't run 
any faster on that old dinosaur of a laptop.

Thanks for the info on how to fix the mail situation.  I have the same 
problem.  I will try that fix and make a note of it somewhere because I know 
I will need it later.
