Tired of the same old default start page? Maybe you have disabled it.
Want to try something new? Start the day with a peaceful message to
ponder while your emails are downloading. In its basic form,

it can carry your own message to all who have installed Morningdove.

"So advertise yourself that you're for peace if you believe in it."
John Lennon (1940-1980)
