• Configuring Echomail on S

    From Necrosis@DIGDIST/BATTLEST/FREEWAY to All on Mon Jul 10 15:48:00 2017
    Hello everyone, I am a returning Sysop who's starting up a new BBS using Synchronet for the first time. I found some documentation online regarding
    how to use Echoconfig.exe to help configure fidonet echomail systems onto your BBS. The one thing that I am puzzled about is that I seem to not have a area.bbs or a backbone.na file anywhere in my SBBS directory. Is there somewhere online where I can download these files? I tried doing a search for them and haven't really found anything in regards of downloading. Does anyone know a possible work around? I tried looking through the main config program and don't quite understand how to use that to add a echo service (If you can
    at all)

    Thank you for your time.

    This is really the wrong message area for Synchronet-support questions.

    That said, here's where you can start with regards to FidoNet: http://wiki.synchro.net/howto:fidonet
