Zonegates are a relic of the past when mailers were 2D. Zonegates were a trick
to move mail from one zone to another with mailers that were not zone-aware.
The mechanism became obsolete with the coming of zone-aware 3D mailers.

Zonegates are obsolete. Z1, Z2 and Z3 have removed them years ago. You shold
not just remove 4/5 but ALL the zonegates.

Cheers, Michiel

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
