I want to write an email-program especially for dumb terminals. That 
means, that there are no methods for the positioning of the cursor and 
so on. 

The Input can only be done in a line, that means, typing a character 
and then pressing enter.

I'm now searching for the best method for desiging such an user 

This program will be especially written for writing and reading email 
over packet radio. The delay between input and output over packet 
radio is between 1 and 10 seconds, thats something I also must 
consider when designing it.

Is there anything ready in the samples? Does anybody knows a program 
that I can take to adopt some feature from?
