elm for doing this. You don't have to do something special,
you only have to use the pfnz-notation for adressing. So

Internet adresses can be used directly and for MAUSnet systems you use
the apt Internet-address, e.g.
Despite that the mail is send via the Fido-Maus-gate (if you haven't

recognized and converted correctly (not all Mice are accessable via
.maus.de). FidoGate comes along with the latest version of the
file you can find in
Another important point is sending mails to tools (Areafix,
FileMgr,...). These often have problems with mails created by
FidoGate. As the mails often have a "
* To: address" in the
first line, which some of the tools interpret as a command to order
all Areas ("
*").If you don't want such a line, you can enter in
elm in the menu H)eader with U)ser-Defined-Header
(before sending the message) an additional header-line:
Another problem is that FileScan and some other tools have the bad habbit to take the address not from the header, but from the message-ID. But this doesn't contain the FTN-address (Z:N/F.P), but the Internet-address. You can fix this with:
X-Flags: Mby this the usual Fido-message-ID is generated (for different nets with the apt address).
Of course you can combine the X-flags. I use for instance for all messages to robots:
If you want to send crashmails, you have to add an additional
X-Flags: C". If you address to a point, the mail is crashed to
FileAttaches are possible, too. Add a "
X-Flags: F" and a
filename (with path!) as subject.
If you want to set flags for all mails, you have to create a file like
~/.elm/elmheaders, which only contains the headerline, e.g.
X-Flags: MNThis line will be added to all messages.
If the X-Flags show now effect, have a look into the FidoGate-logfile,
as FidoGate will probably remark that
/usr/local/lib/fidogate/config.common is not identical with
the name of the computer FidoGate runs on. But this is a must for the
acceptance of the X-Flags, else everybody could create crashmails and
filerequests and send them from your site.
