    From Gaylen Hintz@1:288/34 to All on Tue Aug 30 13:17:47 2011
    Hello All!

    I have a couple systems that poll from my systems but they are do not always have their systems online so when I poll I cannot connect of course. My question is this.. if I have their node set to inactive my system will not poll
    theirs but can they still poll me and get through to get their mail?

    Can you turn off the Crash or Direct flags for those nodes, and have their mail set to HOLD as it is archived?

    You have a ingoing and outgoing binkp setting, so you can by the outgoing binkp
    menu disable polls to the nodes but have the ingoing binkp setting to active but not crash mail.
    If you have a node set as inactive will the nodes not get any mail from you.


    Take care,

    that should result in their being marked as active... but i would just stop trying to poll them at all...

    Yes, if your mailtosser puts their mail in a directory for them to pickup.
    You must also config Irex so that the downlink has a directory for mail to pickup and not use a Binkp config.

    outgoing binkp menu disable polls to the nodes but have the ingoing
    binkp setting to active but not crash mail.

    You should config this downlink as 'Toss to a directory' and give it a directory under IREX that your mailtosser can toss and HOLD mail to.

    If you have a node set as inactive will the nodes not get any mail
    from you.

    They will not.

    I've now got their mail set to hold/direct seems to be working well now. :)

    Nope, running Irex for windows and I see no opion there in the setup menu for

    OK, that's kind of what I thought. Thanks Gert

    If you set thier nodes to inactive and they poll, they'll still pick up thier packets Gaylen, I have a system in Europe that recieves one Fido file base from me, for some reason I can't poll his system, I set his to inactive and he polls me once a day to recieve his packets, it works very well.

    Hello Timothy.

    While chewing on a twig, you spoke thus to me:

    If you set thier nodes to inactive and they poll, they'll
    still pick up thier packets Gaylen, I have a system in Europe
    that recieves one Fido file base from me, for some reason I
    can't poll his system, I set his to inactive and he polls me
    once a day to recieve his packets, it works very well.

    Ok, cool... that's what I've done and we shall see what happens.
    Thanks!
