I ran install an install for Turnpike version 1.1 and then upgrades for versions 4 & 5.01U, all under Wine. I copied the files from the original installation on Win98SE over to their new location in /Home/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Turnpike
I amended the relevant lines in CONNECT.INI & TURNPIKE.INI to reflect Turnpike's new location.
What does not
TURNPIKE.EXE seems to forget the size of the window pane as last used, so starts maximised. This is a minor problem.
My only problem was that after connecting & fetching/sending emails, CONNECT.EXE crashed after 30s delay. The crash report mentioned mfc42.dll & user32.dll.
Firstly, I added the dll's (from VCRedist) using Winetricks & they arrived in the syswow64 directory. It loaded both mfc42.dll and MFC64.DLL. These were different versions. I fetched a copy from Win98SE and overwrote MFC42.DLL. This appeared to be the same version as mfc64.dll and the later of the two versions.
Secondly, suspecting that CONNECT.EXE was trying to access a time server, I put a server address back in CONNECT.INI. SetClock was already set to NO.
Thirdly, in case it was trying to poll a serial port modem which didn't exist, I clicked Stop on Dialling Status.
One of these measures seems to have fixed the problem.
CONNECT.EXE rebuilt the encrypted mail database.
I found a FAQ for Turnpike.
What was not tested
The PGP encryption features.
