• Netmail question...

    From Bill McGarrity@DIGDIST/BATTLEST/FREEWAY to Digital Man on Sat Feb 18 23:21:00 2017
    Hello Digital!

    As you know, I'm running sbbsecho as a stand-alone on a Pi to use as an echo hub. If a netmail comes addressed to me using the hub's node address, it'll just sit there as it really doesn't know what the hell to do with it. Now, does sbbsecho read alias.cfg and if so, can it be setup to forward that netmail to another FTN address.

    Thanks

    Bill


    ... Gone crazy, be back later, please leave message.

    If the netmail is destined to your hub address, which is the machine it's just sitting on, sbbsecho knew exactly what to do with it, and there it sits waiting
    to be read from that node number. :)

    Since you're not doing anything else regarding email or anything on that system. You could setup a small Golded config file just to read your netmail on
    that system (/sbbs/ctrl/mail.cnf I believe). But otherwise I don't think there is any kind of forwarding mechanism.

    Yes, that I understand... I guess my overzealous description was not really what I meant.

    Does GoldEd have a linux version?

    I would hope Rob would look into something like this though. Would be nice... :)

    I know, I'm impossible sometimes.. lol

    No, alias.cfg is for Internet email.

    I don't really follow what it is you're describing. If your system isn't "the hub" why would an FTN netmail be addressed to you using the hub's node address? If SBBSecho only imports netmail (by default) for the addresses you have configuredin SCFG->Networks->FidoNet. If you want SBBSecho (v3) to import *all* netmail, regardless of destination address, set IgnoreNetmailDestAddr = true in your ctrl/sbbsecho.ini file.

    file.

    The HUB is just running sbbsecho and binkd. If somehow someone sends me a netmail using the HUB's address, it will just sit there and I'll never know it's there unless I physically check the netmail folder. My question was if there was a way of setting up a file similar to alias.cfg for FTN netmail that IF netmail addressed to me comes into the HUB node address, it gets forwarded to the BBS node address where I will be notified. I don't want the HUB importing any netmail except for an areafix requests.

    Example:

    Incoming to HUB Forward to:

    *@24:24/1 1@24:100/1

    Thanks...

    There is no feature like that in SBBSecho today.

    Ok... but if I'm reading between the lines with the 'today" statement, would it be considered for the future?? ;)

    Perhaps. It doesn't sound like something quick or easy and nobody else has ever asked for it. I may take a look into it at some point, but no promises.
