• Dove-Net message download

    I seem to have got the dove-net messages downloading correctly, my board downloads all new messages from the point that I initially setup my QWK account, my question is this - Can I choose to download a backlog of messages since a certain date in the past?

    I think you can do so by logging into Vertrauen with your QWK account and changing the scan pointers back to some date in the past. The next time your BBS connects to download messages, it should download the older messages (and with Synchronet's dupe checking, you shouldn't have to worry about having duplicate messages that you've already downloaded).
