I'm sure they would. I know in the past they were able, in
the pots days during all the ramming to get it done because
of unsecured links however. Iirc there were a couple of

their systems back then. HOwever, they password protected
all their echomail links.

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.
