Field TO in reply message

NA> I have looked into the implementation details of what goes into
NA> Fidonet 'To' field when you follow-up on (reply to) a message in
NA> jamnntpd/smapinntpd.

NA> When you view an article, the 'To' field from the JAM message will
NA> show up as an optional 'X-Comment-To:' header.

NA> When you post an article as a result of a follow-up, your client may
NA> provide an optional field 'References: ' with the message-id of the
NA> original message you replied to (and sometimes the whole chain).

NA> I have tested with Thunderbird for Mac and NewsTapLite for iOS and
NA> both passed the correct 'References: ' header. Jamnntpd/smapinntpd
NA> will look up that message-id from the 'Reference: ' header in the JAM
NA> database and will extract the 'From' field of that message. That
NA> 'From' name will become a 'To' field of the newly posted message.
NA> That 'From' name will also be used as initials when smart quoting
NA> feature is enabled.

Very Happy Very Happy

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;
