    I was curious about everyone adds taglines to their messages? I seem recall them back in the 90's when I was here before but havent see an option for them. care to shed some light on how to do that?

    I think most of us are using Auto-Signature.
    Just go into your message area and set an auto signature, and it will be added to every message you send. You can also toggle it on/off there.

    Tag Line are not Signature

    I checked with g00r00 as I could not remember it all (and plan to add this to the Mystic Wiki)

    You create a data file like taglines.txt in your DATA directory.

    Each line in the txt file has a tagline phrase on it.

    e.g.

    A billion dollars isn't what it used to be. - Nelson Bunker Hunt
    A bird in the hand is safer than one overhead..
    A bird in the hand is the best way to eat chicken.

    Then in your Mystic message base you replace the text in your Origin field
    with @RANDOM=taglines.txt

    You can also include a path name there too but if not it defaults to the DATA directory.

    This will cause Mystic to choose a random entry from the taglines.txt file
    and add it to your outgoing echomail posts for that message base.

    Hope that helps..

    I will add this to the Wiki and cross post it now to FSX_MYS

    Best, Paul

    In my case, it is because I am using an offline reader (multimail) to read
    the bluewave mail packets from my BBS (running magicka). The offline
    reader is adding the (random) taglines.
