If you're going to get serious about satellites, this is the way to go.
However, I find I don't need to do the copy and paste (and Notepad is a pain
in the *** as it is prone to adding a .txt on the end of filenames).  I just
use the "save as" command of the mail reader and save the email to the
\winorbit\keps (as "amateur.tle") directory where all my tracking programs
look for updates.
