• Mail tosser

    From Phillip Taylor@1:109/201 to All on Wed Nov 7 14:57:00 2007
    I think I got the mail tosser to work with pcboard. Qfront is being used
    to toss and scan the mail and beemail is being used as the front end.

    It has not been easy getting the mail stuff work work and I wish that
    someone would convert the fido struct from c to vb so I could write a
    new mail tosser. I would, but I do not know c and I do not have the
    time to learn a new lanuage right now.

    You can use the keygen that comes with QFront 1.20a to create a legal
    keyfile for yourself. That's what I've done. I'm using QFront myself and
    it's been working very well.

    What site are you refering to because all the fido stuff that I am
    finding is in C and not Visual Basic.

    What I meant was that why start trying to program a new tosser when
    the world is full of mail tossers.

    I think most BBS's that handle Fido have an assortment of different
    mail tossers just for the asking.

    BTW, does anybody else still use Visual Basic?

    That is correct, but the last time the mail tossers has been updated was
    back in 1990 and its now 2007.

    Qfront works fine with the echomail but not for the netmail. Fidopcb is crippleware and from my understanding its no longer supported so you can
    not get a registraton key for it. Fidopcb only supports up to 10 echoes
    on the unregistered version of it.

    I haven't had any problems with QFront and Netmail myself. I don't get that many Netmails though. Is the problem you've had with QFront and Netmail due to the mailer not sending out the Netmails? Or ??

    OK - its been many many years since first having a BBS on line. Back
    then it was all modem - Metaworlds was just coing out when I had a
    career to handle. So he is a question. I'm using binkd to get my mail
    from fidonet and it pretty automated - mail comes and go - just need to automate the tossing. Is there any programs today that will monitor tje
    the fido mail queue and import and export mail from pcboard. I'm using
    the fossil driver is no screens are running in pcboard?

    Thanks
