> Could win32 exe's run under door.sys instead of door32.sys?

door.sys and door32.sys are just drop files: text files created by the BBS to
communicate parameters/status to an external program (e.g. door game). So of
course, 16-bit DOS programs could read the door32.sys file if they wished and
native Win32 exe's could read a door.sys file if they wished. But door.sys and
door32.sys files do not contain the exact same information.

Of course, don't confuse door32.sys with Wildcat!'s door32.dll - it's a
completely different thing.

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;
