No debian never had the learn package which is why I suggested what I 
suggested.  You ought to read what I write more carefully before 
criticizing it.  In order to send email odds are especially with new 
Linux users he is using an internet service provider as an email 
platform.  When the connection gets made to that provider, usually 
speakup will tell people what operating system is used on that internet 
service provider.  If Debian were being used by the internet service 
provider, your question might have some relevance as is I don't know 
what the internet service provider uses yet.
