• mbse and a secondary msg system

    From Vincent Coen@2:250/1 to All on Thu Mar 31 22:26:45 2022
    Hello All!

    1. I seem to get odd issues from time to time in the Jam message base so that mbmsg does not
    function or locks up.

    Is there some s/w (software) that will examine one or more jam bases and report on status
    and offer to repair it ?

    2. More importantly I run the ELIST echo system and that takes as input a submission file
    sent directly to my node at 2:25/21

    That works, but for some moderators their s/w cannot handle sending in a file even as an
    attachment to a netmail so the questions are :

    2A. Is it possible to support a second message system msg so that all messages have one file
    name and these tend to be in the format of n.msg where n = 1 incremented by 1 for each new
    msg. This is only for use in one of my netmail areas so that I can read each one present
    and copy over the content minus any read tape (i.e., kludges etc) and create a submission
    file for each one and when the file is successfully created delete the msg as I assume that
    is the only way of coping with what has and has not been read.

    This was the message base I think that was available with SBBS - so long ago I just cannot

    So mbsetup to support it by allowing an option to override the standard JAM base by
    selecting MSG format when setting up an echo area such as for netmail area/s.

    mbfido for tossing to a msg base area.

    2B. May be a lot easier:

    A way of exporting a Jam messagebase as individual files for each msg saved as a text file
    with an option to delete each one after the save is successful.
    Again this is only for a netmail area.

    Anyone have any ideas ?
