Gareth's MAILGW mods
Mods for MAILGW 0.3.1
Download the base mods.
- Introduces 'Distribution:' header to items gated between PBBS and NNTP.
Uses the new file distribution.map (place in /etc/mailgw) to map
between PBBS bulletin distributions and NNTP article distributions.
- Fixes the 'AMPR.ORGEU' bug that can corrupt From: addresses and
the fake R: Line in certain circumstances
- Fixes a bug which can lead to nntp articles being gated to the wrong
PBBS To: field
See the README.mods file inside that tar/gzip package.
Download the T: Line mods.
'Mailgw' users who operate in an environment where T: Lines are rife on
messages imported from the AX25 BBS network may like to additionally
consider making use of this replacement pbbs_rcv.c
- The first T: line encountered was not processed if the T: lines
followed immediately on from the R: lines without a break. Fixed.
- The newline character at the end of a T: line was being carried
over. If contents were transferred to the new nntp article header,
two newline characters 'broke' the header with a blank line.
- T:From lines can be ignored so that the AX25 BBS return address is
mapped and processed such that it can be replied to via the mailgw
host. This can be re-enabled by replacing the #if 0 at line 308
with #if 1
- T: Lines are now sought and processed if there is a gap between
themselves and the R: Lines above. Some AX25 BBS's insert From:
and To : between the R: Lines and the message body, and these
are preserved. If what appears to be message text is found between
the R: lines and the T:'s, then the T: lines are not processed.
Download the JNOS BID mods.
If there are JNOS NNTP to AX25 BBS gateways operating on the same
TCP/IP network as your 'Mailgw' box, these mods create JNOS BIDs
when translating RFC-822 style Message IDs to a form suitable for
the AX25 BBS network. Providing that the newsgroup to AX25 To:
field translation is the same at all gateways, duplicates arising
on the AX25 network should be eliminated.
The UK recommended AX25 BBS / NNTP
newsgroup gateway translation files can be made use of by 'Mailgw',
JNOS and TNOS gateways.
