(a) you'd be better off (IMHO) using one of the later versions of hypermail (see <>) They're called alpha versions but they're good stuff and in active use with people ready to fix things.

(b) that sounds like a problem with an extra declaration of bzero - I don't have a copy of this version around but seem to recall it's in one of the .h files - just remove the declaration - it will pick the right one up from the system include files.
