This does not mean you have to use Outlook to _send_ mail to
the linux-kernel mailing list. Do this:

1. log into the Linux box you have
2. run emacs
3. Control-x m
4. fill in the header fields and write your message
5. Control-c Control-c

If you really must send mail directly from the Windows box,
get emacs for Windows and skip step 1 above.

BTW, if you can't log into anything that can open an SMTP connection
to the outside world and don't have a relay, then most likely your
employer doesn't want you sending stuff to linux-kernel anyway.
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
the body of a message to
