SBBSecho currently supports 2 types of FidoNet mailers:
1. Binkley-Style-Outbound (a.k.a. BSO or FLO-style)
2. ArcMail/Attach (a.k.a. FrontDoor-style)
Most modern FidoNet mailers support the first type (either only, as is
the case with BinkD, or as an option) and it appear *no* modern mailers support only the second type.
The support for the second type remains in the SBBSecho source code,
but I have no reasonable ways of testing it. I've asked for testers,
but received no responses. So I have to assume that the support for
those mailer types is most likely broken and doen't work.
To simplify the source code and the sysop experience, I'm considering *removing* support from SBBSecho v3 for the older ArcMail/Attach/FD
style mailers. If there is no objection, I'll be doing this pretty soon (before the offical "release" of SBBSecho v3.0). This should have no impact on sysops that are using SBBSecho with BSO/FLO style mailers,
which appears to be *every* sysop using SBBSecho today.
