    okay you didn't say you were using a reader.

    I tried sending netmail from the board interface (non-private), and

    how did you do it? through the reader? or via the bbs?

    I used the main read mail function, then selected netmail on the
    bbs. When I tried sending a private email from the QWK packet
    reader (BlueWave 2.20 with Y2K update), I found it was not private
    but sent to all.

    To send email via QWK, you need to post the message to conference #0.

    also tried to send a private message. (telegram)

    that's entirely different.

    When I tried to send private mail from Vert main message menu using
    E to enter, I selected private and it came up with a few selections
    such as telegram, chat, netmail etc. I tried a few but got errors.

    All email and netmail is private, or as private as you can expect at least. There is non-private email or netmail option, they are implicitly private.
    I think you're confusing the private inter-node and inter-BBS communications (via the Ctrl-P hotkey) with email. They're very different things.

    Thanks for the help, I'll see if I can figure it out on my own.
