Microsoft Mail (PC Client) supports the Hercules InColor graphics card through the use of a special video driver called HERCCLR.VID, which is provided on the original Mail disks. The size of the HERCCLR.VID file is dependent upon the version of the Mail PC Client you are using, as shown below:

   Version     Size of HERCCLR.VID
   -------     -------------------

   1.37        13712 bytes
   2.00        14131 bytes
   3.00        14131 bytes

When you run the Mail Setup program, it will perform tests against your graphics card. If it detects a Hercules InColor card, it will copy the video driver HERCCLR.VID to the Mail program directory and rename it SCREEN.VID.

If there is a SCREEN.VID file in the Mail program directory, the information in the SCREEN.VID file will be used to properly draw the screen while your mailbox is open.
