    Read the doc! ;) Some commands need extra parameters.

    Pshaw. I'm a sysop, I don't read docs! ;)

    Well reading it front to back is optional. ;)
    But using it as a reference for specific options, is good practice! ;)

    I have the same commands for my dos/windows and linux environment in
    my config. As long as the commands are in your [%$]PATH on both sides
    it should work.

    Looks like in your case you don't change things to lowercase on your Linux machine. I'd rather do that, hence the -L parameter.

    FMail handles filenames in any case, so I don't worry about it.

    Also, -qq on Linux runs even quieter than just -q.

    I like to have some output in my debug log of what the decompressor is doing...

    This is what I have in my config:

    Zip is all I need. The other two are completely pointless for mail these days.

    Not for me. Lha is still used in AmigaNet as the default. And I use rar to compress for my point system because it's better at compressing (specially multiple files). And I sometimes don't get the mail for my point for weeks...

    I'm not even going to use ZIP unless someone actually wants to change their default setting of NONE.

    Same here...

    That said, in both the Area manager and Node manager, it's not
    like my F-keys are working. Is there something I'm missing here?

    Disregard. Bottom right of the screen it shows "Ins Del" and I mistook that for Insert means to delete the entry. Gotta add one entry before you can use any of the F-keys. ;)
