[ that GPL requires 8.3 is bullshit indeed. Though it talks about
equivalent access to the source code. If someone who can access the binary
can't access the source code, only then you have a problem, but as most
released zips have both source code and binary there is usually no issue.
Anyway without the OP explaining his claim this is just guessing ].

But then what does DOS know about writing emails...

run dosemu remotely (perhaps using "-dumb") and GNU screen or something
like that and you can switch between multiple DOS programs and Linux
programs as often as you like :)
