OK.  I tried upgrading.  Here is the result:
1.  rpm -Uvh openssl-0.9.6-9.i386.rpm
Completed ok.

2.  rpm -ivh libesmtp-0.8.6-1.i386.rpm
error: failed dependencies: is needed by libesmtp-0.8.6-1 is needed by libesmtp-0.8.6-1 is needed by libesmtp-0.8.6-1

3.  rpm -q openssl-0.9.6-9.i386.rpm

Why would I get the errors in step 2 if step 3 says that it is install ok?

I don't understand why I should do this.  I tried it for the heck of it and
it did not make any difference.

I checked the "Check periodically..." box and it appears to have worked! 
Checking mail anyway.

I have the smtp server set for Local mail transport agent.  No port is
specified.  The weird thing is, when I try to send mail, it tries dialing
on my Windows XP computer which is connected via tcp/ip.  I changed this to
my dialup's mail server and it sent mail.

So... it appears that I at least have everything working with 1.1.7 but I
would still love to upgrade. That's where I guess I need help.
