Message new scan with and without /G?
Hello again, g00r00!

I have now added the group requirement to all my message areas, including the
local ones. For my Private Messages local area, I have:

? Name ? Private Messages (PMs) ?
? Base Type ? Local Quote Color ? Sample
? Newsgroup ? LOC_PRIVMSGS Text Color ? Sample
? QWK Name ? LOC_PRIVMSGS Tear Color ? Sample
? Echo Tag ? Origin Color ? Sample
? File Name ? LOC_PRIVMSGS Kludge Color ? Sample
? Path ? /mnt/bbs/mystic/msgs/local/ Max Msgs ? 0
? List ACS ? g1 Max Msg Age ? 0
? Read ACS ? g1 New Scan ? Forced
? Post ACS ? g1&!fa QWK Scan ? Forced
? Sysop ACS ? s255g1 Header ? msghead
? List EACS ? % R Template ? ansimrd
? ? L Template ? ansimlst
? Net Address ? 0:0/0 (Local Address) Real Names ? No
? Export To ? 0 node(s) Autosigs ? Yes
? Origin ? Private ? Yes
? QWK Network ? None Pvt Reply ? No
? QWK Base ID ? 0 Allow ANSI ? Yes

In my prelogin menu, and for (C)heck E-Mail in the Messages Menu, I have:

Command: (MC) Check e-mail

When it checks for e-mails, I get:


###### From Subject Date
1 Zip Test 1 07/27/21

...but when selecting "Yes", I get:

You don't have access to read in this message area!

End of messages.

...apparently because I was currently standing in:

Group....: FidoNet
Area.....: MYSTIC: Discussion and chat about the Mystic BBS software

I tried adding /G or /GROUP to (MC), but it didn't appear to have any effect,
so probably those flags do not exist for (MC). I couldn't find anything
affirmative on the wiki or in whatsnew.txt regarding such flags either.

Is there some way to make this work, allowing it to display new e-mails
regardless of the current area?

Or should I skip using the (MC) function and instead rely on my global personal
scan instead, i.e.:

Command: (MN) Message new scan
Data: /P /G /NOLR /NOREAD that one appears to have no problems reading the messages (thanks to /G)?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards

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;
