Does anyone have suggestions?

The problem is batch files do not handle I/O redirection like Unix-based
shell scripts.  If you are using a recent release, you could try: -scan -outdir 919mail >scan.txt
    mhonarc -scan -outdir 919mail -stdout scan.txt

My setup is win98 and although I have 2 other linuxes connected via
ethernet Im using win98 because its just easier to work in.

Win98 easier to work in?  Them fighting words :-)
Though, I am curious as to why.
