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

Thank you for your reply and for the clarifications!

Thanks, yes, that's the one I copied to my theme and modified slightly.

I added /NOSCAN and /NEW to MQ -- to skip displaying area names during the
actual scanning, and to skip areas with nothing new in them. That appears to
work just fine.

I also added /NOLR to MN, as I do not want to update last read pointers (I want
to be able catch up on echomails afterwards, which would be ruined otherwise).

All this works fine, *except* that if MQ finds something (again, the MQ output
is perfectly fine!Wink, so that one gets the choice of running the MN, the MN
*might* find slightly *more* messages (namely new messages from me to others,
not only from me to me or from others to me). So that's the only "oddity"
with all this.

If there were an MN option to exclude messages that are *not* to me, i.e. to
narrow /P to messages that *are* to me, the global personal scan would
function just as I would expect it to. So it's very close. =)

That explains a few things. =)

What would the recommended ACS fields be for a local private area (local "PMs"
between users), and a local non-private area (local "conference"),

Right now I have adjusted to (for a local "private" area):

...and (for a local "conference"):

(The fa and fb flags are to be able to disable posting by "troublesome"
users, if needed.Wink

Thanks in advance!

Best regards
