• Improvements to email attachment downloads

    From deon@1:103/705 to Digital Man on Sun Sep 3 12:16:01 2023
    Hey DM,

    I'm using sychronet more for "bbs" related email, and I had a user send me an email with 10 screenshots (and thus 10 attachments).

    Since I'm away from home, I dont have POP enabled, and leveraged a terminal to download the attachments to look at them. (That all worked well.)

    However, after *each* attachment I was asked if I wanted to hangup after it being received. I also didnt know how many there were, and at one point I wondered if it was looping. (It wasnt.)

    I wondered if it was possible to some changes, I was thinking these three things:
    * Can all attachments be sent as a batch, thus one answer to "yes" that I want to download them, and one answer to "no" dont hangup.

    * Is it possible to display how many (and I guess how big) the attachments are?

    * If batch is not possible, can the ask to hangup be only asked once?

    i took a peek on vert and it looks like the "Temp Directory Command Menu" is still there (still an awesome feature btw..)

    perhaps it can be reworked slightly so email files can be pushed into the temp dir so users can create a zip file of them (or even grab individual files from inside other ones)
