• sbbsecho and NetMail

    Good day! I've noticed that Fido-based NetMail isn't flowing outbound unless I manually invoke sbbsecho from a *nix shell. Is there a timed event that should be running to ensure NetMail flows or am I missing something?

    A "FIDOMAIL" event should be configured in SCFG->External Programs->Timed Events by default. Similarly, SCFG->Networks->Fido->NetMail Semaphore should be set to "%jfidomail.now" to trigger that event when a netmail message is created.

    Thank you. That was it. I exported from a backup and ran into some issues during the import that somehow mangled by FidoNet EchoMail and NetMail configuration. I should've caught that.
