I myself prefer
tin as the newsreader. As tin, like all other
newsreaders wasn't constructed for Fido, there's no standard-method to
address echomail to someone, which is possible and usual in Fido.
FidoGate allows this this via a additional headerline
X-Comment-To: You can create it manually but do not forget the
username in brackets. You also may use a complete Internet-adress
including a realname.
X-Comment-To: (Roland Rosenfeld) X-Comment-To: email@example.com (Roland Rosenfeld)
In the directory
fidogate/contrib/news you find patches for
nn, which generate this line
automatically, if you answer to an article via echomail. If you don't
want to patch
tin, you can insert the following line in
news_quote_format=X-Comment-To: (%N)\n\n%F wrote in msg %M:but then don't forget to delete the emptyline before the
X-Comment-To:in every follow-up.
If you already use one of the beta-versions of tin (from
tin-1.3beta-950824) you can the following in
scope=* auto_save_msg=OFF scope=fido.* x_comment_to=ON scope=ger.* x_comment_to=ON
X-Comment-To:-Header without patching tin.
As an alternative you can configure the newsreader since FidoGate 3.9.5 so that one of the following lines stands in the message. The realname will then retrieved from this:
firstname.lastname@example.org (User Name) writes: User Name <email@example.com> writes: firstname.lastname@example.org: email@example.com (User Name) wrote: User Name <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: email@example.com wrote: In article <firstname.lastname@example.org> email@example.com writes: In article <firstname.lastname@example.org>, email@example.com writes:
