• More QWK woes

    From poindexter FORTRAN@1:103/705 to All on Thu Feb 8 06:55:00 2024
    Astute readers will recall that I incorrectly gave my DOVEnet message
    areas static QWK conference numbers. I've changed them all to Dynamic,
    and now I'm seeing TECH_TALK messages in SYNC_DATA - but only in my
    Multimail, my QWK reader. If I read locally on the board, they're in the correct area.

    I knew that some settings were stored on the BBS, found the
    \sbbs\data\user directory. I tried moving all of the 0000.* files
    corresponding to me out, but I'm still seeing TECH_TALK messages in the incorrect area.

    Has anyone seen this before?

    Is it possible you have a stale CONTROL.DAT file that Multimail is using?

    I thought I had set all of my DOVEnet areas to Dynamic QWK numbers, but
    TechTalk and a couple of others were still set manually. Once I set
    everything to dynamic, it seemed to fix the problem.

    Pilot error.

    Are you sure you moved the correct files? The sysop should be user 1, so your data files would be 0001.*

    I still had a couple of QWK areas with static conference numbers, this
    should have resolved the issue - I hope.
