I am using Wine v0.9.3 to run Pegasus Mail v4.31. I am happy to report that I 
am able to shut PM down without "crashing" it as I had to do with the Alpha 
versions of the past year or more.

menu (File, Edit, Bookmark, and Help) and tabs (Contents, Search, Back, 
History, and Topics) plus an image generated by Pegasus Mail. The remainder of 
that window is blank. The only tab that appears to do anything is "History" 
which displays a tall narrow window with the words "History index" at the top 
and nothing more. Here is a full list of the menus:

Pegasus Mail rather than to Wine.

Does anyone have any information they can offer me as to how to get this 
functionality to work? I don't have access to the Pegasus Mail source code.
