WHAT IS THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR?
--------------------------------

The Blue Wave Mail Door is only half of a complete package. It is the
part that you, as a sysop, will run online from your BBS. Users can
then sign into The Blue Wave Mail Door, download mail packets to read
offline, and upload replies that they have created offline.

The Blue Wave Mail System is a complete package consisting of The Blue
Wave Mail Door, and The Blue Wave Offline Mail Reader. Both programs
work together to make your message bases more active. Since users can
download their mail in less than one tenth of the time that it would
take them to read it online, your system is open for more callers, or
activity in other areas of the BBS. Users are not pushed against time
limits, and long distance users are not paying for the extra connect
time to the BBS.

The advent of offline mail systems has helped amateur e-mail networks,
such as FidoNet, grow and prosper into a wealth of useful information.
Since users can take their time and reply offline at their
convenience, many times their messages are more meaningful. The Blue
Wave Mail System allows users to utilize the editor of their choice in
order to reply to messages. This gives them even more comfort with
the idea of entering mail.

What else does The Blue Wave Mail System have to offer? Why use The
Blue Wave Mail System when there are a host of other programs
available that allow users the luxury of offline mail reading?

* The Blue Wave Mail System is the first full-featured offline mail
system available for Telegard v2.5i and now for Telegard v2.7. It
offers complete compatibility with your Telegard system files.

* Communication through a FOSSIL driver, to ensure total
compatibility with today's and tomorrow's high-speed modems.

* Full remote TTY/ANSI/AVATAR support.

* Full support for either HotKeys or no HotKeys.

* Incredible ease of installation. The installation module reads
most of its setup parameters directly from your existing Telegard
setup.

* A maintenance utility that makes changing your Blue Wave Mail Door
setup parameters incredibly easy.

* Allows users maximum flexibility in creating a custom download
packet through the use of Blue Wave Bundling Commands.



-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 4









WHAT IS THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR (continued)
-------------------------------------------

* Full logging capability. You can set your own logging levels based
upon seven different options.

* Full, accurate updating of your BBS statistics.

* Full DUPE checking, to ensure that users do not upload duplicate
messages into your message bases.

* Support for up to 10 protocols and 8 archivers of your choice.

* Information status bar at the bottom of the local sysop screen.

* Allows users the ability to password-protect both their on-line
mail sessions AND downloaded mail packets.

* Ability to store up to 3 user Bundling Command Macros, for those
that repeat frequently used commands.

* The Blue Wave Mail Door can optionally swap to extended or expanded
memory, or even to disk during its shell to the external archivers
and protocols, to allow it to run in limited memory situations.

* A Blue Wave Mail Door user file editor is contained with your Blue
Wave Mail Door maintenance utility, BWUTILS.

* An interactive user environment when ON-LINE, unlike some packages
that require the user to perform all of their duties off-line.

* Allows users a choice of AUTO-LOGOFF at the completion of a mail
packet download.

* Excellent support for multiple mail packets from the same BBS.
Each mail packet is named identifying your BBS, the day of the
week it was downloaded, and the packet number downloaded for the
current day.

* Full user and sysop support via the FidoNet backbone echo BLUEWAVE,
and direct netmail support from the authors of the package for
registered users.

* Saves users on-line time and $$$, while still allowing active
participation in Echomail, Groupmail, and local message bases.
This in turn frees up your system, so more callers can get through,
since users do their reading and replying OFFLINE, at THEIR
convenience!

* Full support for FidoNet netmail, interzone netmail, netmail to and
from points, and cost checking through a Version 6 Nodelist.

* All of this, and The Blue Wave Mail Door runs faster than any mail
door that we have been able to test!

INSTALLING THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR
----------------------------------

Because most people absolutely abhor reading documentation, this
section is meant to provide a quick, simple, yet detailed step-by-step
installation procedure. If you read no further in the documentation,
PLEASE READ THIS! There are some tricks to installing The Blue Wave
Mail Door, that, when followed, will provide you with a near hassle-
free installation.

NOTE: The Blue Wave Mail Door requires that you have a
FOSSIL driver loaded. Currently available FOSSIL drivers
include X00, BNU, and OpusCom. You should be able to find a
FOSSIL driver on a BBS that carries communications files.

UNPACK BWMAIL.ZIP, which is enclosed within the distribution archive.
Make a directory on your hard drive specifically for The Blue
Wave Mail Door. Making a separate directory for The Blue Wave
distribution files will make life easier in the long run. UnZIP
BWMAIL.ZIP into your new directory (we'll call it the BLUEWAVE
directory throughout the documentation.)

CHANGE TO YOUR BLUEWAVE directory, and execute BWUTILS. This will
load the door's INSTALLATION module, and guide you through the
initial setup procedures. You will first be prompted to enter
the name of your Telegard MAIN directory (the directory where
BBS.EXE and STATUS.DAT are located). After the Blue Wave Setup
program locates your STATUS.DAT file, it will find out as much
information as possible from Telegard's data files.

EACH MESSAGE AREA that you have defined in Telegard will be taken and
placed into the door configuration file EXACTLY as is. This
includes ACS Strings, base types, ANON types, Post ACS strings,
etc. You won't even have to type them all in!

AFTER A FEW SECONDS, BWUtils will show you a screen informing you that
is has gathered as much data as possible. The installation
program also installed several sample archiver and protocol
configurations into your setup. At this time it will be
necessary to "walk" through each menu item of the installation
and maintenance utility in order to enter information that cannot
be found through your Telegard setup.

At this time, you should continue reading the documentation in order
to learn what each item inside of BWUtils does. The next section will
describe, in detail, each of the menu items and choices available to
you.

THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR CONFIGURATION EDITOR
--------------------------------------------
(How to use BWUTILS.EXE to edit your setup.)

After the original initialization of The Blue Wave Mail Door is
complete, you will be taken to The Blue Wave Mail Door's Configuration
Editor. By default, if BWUTILS finds a configuration file already
present, you will be taken directly to this menu. If at any time you
wish to re-run the Door Initialization module, simply delete the file
named BWMAIL.PRM, located in your BLUEWAVE directory. To make simple
changes to your setup, run BWUTILS with no command line parameters,
and you will be taken to the configuration menu.

A thorough description of each item available for editing through
BWUTILS will now be given.


General Information
-------------------
The General Information menu allows you to edit data
regarding your system name, your name as sysop, and some
user limits.

BBS Name:
Enter the name of your BBS here, exactly as you
want it to appear in the door. Your BBS name will
be shown at the top of the main door menu, and
also to the users inside of the offline reader.

Your Real Name:
You should enter your real name in this field. If
you use a handle or alias on your BBS, this is not
the place for it. Your registration code will be
computed based upon the name you give here. Rest
assured that your users will NEVER see this field.

Your Name as Sysop:
Please enter the name or handle that you use in
your Telegard setup to identify yourself to your
users. When entering mail in the offline mail
reader, users may enter "SYSOP" in the TO: Field.
The Blue Wave Mail System will insert this name
for them, instead of your real name, since it may
be different in some cases.

Name of Mail Packet Identifying your BBS:
Enter the root name of the mail packet that you
would like to use to identify your BBS. It should
probably correspond to the name of your BBS. For
example:
WILDBLUE -- The Wild! Blue BBS
SHARK -- The Shark's Mouth BBS
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 7









THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR CONFIGURATION EDITOR (continued)
--------------------------------------------------------

The Blue Wave Mail Door will generate mail packets
using this field as the 'root name'. If today is
Monday, and Joe User is downloading his second
packet of the day, and your Mail Packet Name is
WILDBLUE, the file generated will be named
WILDBLUE.MO2. This allows users of your BBS to
have multiple download packets available at one
time for reading from your BBS.

Registration Number:
Upon registration of The Blue Wave Mail Door with
Cutting Edge Computing, you will receive a unique
registration code. Registration of The Blue Wave
Mail Door not only removes the UNREGISTERED COPY
on the Main Menu, but also entitles you to special
utilities and support NOT available to
unregistered users. If you have a registration
code, please enter it here.

Maximum Number of Downloadable Messages:
Upon initialization of The Blue Wave Mail Door,
this field is defaulted to 1000. Sysops with
tight disk space may wish to set the default
lower. When bundling mail for a user, the door
checks to be sure that the scanned messages do not
exceed this limit. If they do, the user is
instructed to "trim" his or her packet before the
door will allow the bundling process to begin.

Maximum Number of File Requests:
The Blue Wave Mail Door has a built in file
request mechanism. If a user requests that a file
be sent with his or her mail packet, the door will
attempt to find it, based upon the file areas that
you have defined within Telegard. The door
respects all ACS and Restrictions, and checks any
upload and download ratios that may be enforced.

This field allows you to define the maximum number
of files that can be requested during one download
session. To completely disable The Blue Wave Mail
System's file requesting, simply enter a 0 here.

Page 8









THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR CONFIGURATION EDITOR (continued)
--------------------------------------------------------

Reader Files:
Reader files are plain ASCII, or ANSI files that
will be displayed to the user when they load a
mail packet downloaded from your BBS. You may
define up to 5 files to be displayed. You may
wish to send files with each mail packet as an
advertisement of new items or echos available on
the BBS, etc. These files should reside in the
BLUEWAVE directory.

You may use 2 special character sequences in the
reader text files in order to control the display
of the files:

{PAUSE} - Inserts a "Press Any Key To Continue"
{BEEP} - Sounds a beep in the reader.

Default Network Address Information:
These four fields (Zone, Net, Node, Point) require
your Networks's PRIMARY Zone, Net, Node, and Point
Number, if you will be using The Blue Wave Mail
Door in a FidoNet-style application. If you do
not have a network address, please leave these
fields as 0's.

Whenever possible, The Blue Wave Mail Door finds
the address information for each echomail and
netmail area from Telegard's BOARDS.DAT file. The

door will append the origin line defined within
Telegard, and insert the network address.
However, if it cannot find the area within
BOARDS.DAT, this default address will be used to
address the message.

If you are running a point system, and would like
to use The Blue Wave Mail System, there should be
no problem. Specify your BOSSnode address here,
along with your specified point number. Your
complete address will appear in the origin lines.

Default Origin Line:
Specify the default Origin line you would like to
use for this area. Normally, The Blue Wave Mail
Door looks up the origin line for each message
entered through the door within Telegard's
BOARDS.DAT file. However, if you have areas
defined within The Blue Wave Mail Door that are
NOT in your BBS's data files, this default Origin
line will be appended. Do NOT include the address
information at the end of the Origin line. The
door will insert this for you.

THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR CONFIGURATION EDITOR (continued)
--------------------------------------------------------


The Options and Toggles Menu
----------------------------
Swap on Shell to Externals:
If this option is turned on, The Blue Wave Mail
Door will perform a "Memory Swap" when shelling to
execute the external protocols and archivers. The
door will swap all but about 3K out of memory and
free your valuable RAM for use by your archivers
and protocols.

If you enable this options, please also be sure to
specify one of the next 3 options.

Swap to Extended Memory:
If this option is enabled, the door will attempt
to swap to extended memory. If not enough
extended memory is available, a swap to DISK will
be performed.

Swap to Expanded Memory:
If this option is enabled, the door will attempt
to swap to expanded memory. If not enough LIM
v4.0 Expanded Memory is available, a swap to DISK
will be performed.

Swap to Disk:
If you choose to have The Blue Wave Mail Door swap
its used memory to DISK, you will need about 150K
free on your "Swap Drive". You can specify the
full path to your swap directory within the
BWUtils "Directories and Filepaths" menu.

Fast (Direct) Screen Writes:
If this option is set to "Yes", the door will use
direct video writes; directly to your monitor
glass. This is by far the fastest video mode, and
may be incompatible with some systems and/or
multi-taskers. If you have trouble with direct
video writes, set this option to "No". The door
will then use generic BIOS screen writes.

Hang up on user when Time Up:
If this option is set to "Yes", the door will hang
up on a user who exceeds their daily time limit on
the BBS. If this option is set to "No", the door
will return to Telegard when their time limit is
up, instead of dropping carrier.



-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 10









THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR CONFIGURATION EDITOR (continued)
--------------------------------------------------------

Hang up on user on Input Timeout:
If this option is set to "Yes", the door will drop
carrier on a user that has not entered any
commands in 4 minutes. When this option is set to
"No", and the user online has not entered any
commands in 4 minutes, the door will exit and
return to Telegard instead of dropping carrier.

Allow use of G)oodbye Commands:
Normally, The Blue Wave Mail Door will allow the
user to say "Goodbye" from the main menu, and also
give the user the option of an automatic
disconnection after the download of their mail
packet. If this option is set to "No", the door
will not allow users to hang up through the door
in any of these situations.

Allow use of "+)All Areas" Command:
When choosing areas to download from the
Configuration Menu, a user will have the option of
typing "+" to add ALL areas available for download
to his or her list of selected areas. If you have
a lot of message areas on your system, or you find
that users are abusing the +)All command, setting
this option to "No" will disable its use.


























-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 11









THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR CONFIGURATION EDITOR (continued)
--------------------------------------------------------


The Directories and FilePaths Menu
----------------------------------

Path to *.BRD and *.MIX Files:
Specify the complete path to your message base
files, as defined in Telegard.

Blue Wave's LOG File:
Specify the path AND file name of The Blue Wave
Mail Door's own personal LOG file. If you do not
wish to keep a log of door activity, simply leave
this field BLANK.

Blue Wave's WORK Directory:
Specify the path pointing to Blue Wave's personal
WORK directory. The Blue Wave Mail Door will
perform all of its bundling and unpacking in this
directory. You should have enough free space in
this directory to handle the MAXIMUM NUMBER OF
DOWNLOADABLE MESSAGES specified in the General
Information Menu. (This path can lie on a
different drive).

WARNING: This directory will be COMPLETELY erased
whenever the user begins an upload or download
session. Do NOT point this directory somewhere
where there are files that you do not want
deleted.

Blue Wave's DOWNLOAD Directory:
Specify the path to Blue Wave's personal DOWNLOAD
directory. This is the area where mail packets
will be compressed into, and downloaded from.
This directory is cleaned of "PACKETNAME.*"
whenever a user begins to download a packet. To
be safe, you should never keep files in this
directory that you want to keep.
WARNING: Do NOT share your work directory with
the download directory. The door will still work,
but may not operate correctly. The download
directory *may* be shared with the upload
directory, but again, we advise against it.
Normally, when a user leaves The Blue Wave Mail
Door, this directory is cleansed of the packet
that was made. However, in LOCAL mode, the file
is kept so that you may download mail in local
mode and read the packet with The Blue Wave
Offline Mail Reader.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 12









THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR CONFIGURATION EDITOR (continued)
--------------------------------------------------------

Blue Wave's UPLOAD Directory:
The Blue Wave Mail Door uses the UPLOAD directory
to accept a user's upload packet. The protocols
will be executed with the upload directory on the
command line. After a protocol is finished
executing, the door will expect to find the upload
packet here.

After a remote user is finished with an upload,
this directory is erased of "PACKETNAME.*".
However, after a local upload, this directory is
not cleaned, in case you would like to save your
upload packet for later use.

When the door begins an upload session, it CHANGES
to the upload directory, for those protocols that
can only accept uploads to the current directory.
This means that you must either store your
protocol driver in your DOS PATH statement, or
specify the full path and file name to your
protocol driver in the PROTOCOL menu.


Path to Blue Wave's SWAP File:
The path you enter here will be where The Blue
Wave Mail Door will write its SWAP file when
shelling to an external protocol or archiver. If
you do not have swapping enabled in The Blue Wave
Mail Door, you do not need to specify a path here.
If you told the door to use Extended or Expanded
memory on a swap, you should still specify a path
here, however. If the swap to extended or
expanded memory fails, the door will automatically
swap to disk.

The Blue Wave Mail Door's swap file consumes about
200K, and is erased when control returns to the
door.


A special note about directories:
The Blue Wave Mail Door checks for the existence of each of
the UPLOAD, DOWNLOAD, and WORK directories during the
initialization process. If any or all of these directories
do not exist, the door attempts to create them. If,
however, the door is unsucessful in its attempt to create
its working directories, it will log an error and refuse to
run.



-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 13









THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR CONFIGURATION EDITOR (continued)
--------------------------------------------------------

The System ACS Settings Editor
------------------------------

Validated ACS String:
Since The Blue Wave Mail Door does not know what
you consider a "validated user", the "VV" ACS
string needs to know some additional information.
If you use the ACS string "VV" as the level in
*any* of your message areas, please be sure to
include this information here.

The best way to explain this is with an example.
Let's suppose that all validated users on your
system have a security level of 50, and the flag
of N. You would need to define the following for
the "Validated ACS String":

S50Fn

This would allow only users with at least a
security level of 50 and the flag of N to access a
message area protected with the VV access string.

As with Telegard, the strings may be combined in
many ways. Multiple FLAG (F*) restrictions should
be indicated as: "FaFbFlFx". Do not try to
combine a string such as this into something like
"Fablx". It simply will not work correctly.

For readability, you may separate each command
with spaces or "&" signs. Parentheses, "&", and
the "|" operator are all understood by the door.


ACS to Forward Mail in Reader:
Beginning with v2.02 of The Blue Wave Offline Mail
Reader, users are given the ability to FORWARD and
CROSS-REPLY to messages in one area and place them
in another area. You can limit this ability by
specifying an ACS string that will disallow this
behavior.










-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 14









THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR CONFIGURATION EDITOR (continued)
--------------------------------------------------------

ACS to read ALL Private Mail:
This option will allow you to define an ACS level
that is necessary to download ALL Private messages
on the BBS. Normally you would want to limit this
to the Sysop only, but situations may occur where
you may need a Co-Sysop to maintain your message
areas. If you are the sysop, and you want to
download all private messages, you must give
yourself access with this field, or even YOU won't
be able to read the private messages left on your
BBS.


ACS to Download SEEN-BY and ^A Lines:
If you are a member of a network that uses a
FidoNet Technology mail system, you are probably
familiar with the message control information that
is often inserted into messages. Normally, The
Blue Wave Mail Door will strip out this control
information before bundling the message for the
user.

If you would like to download this control
information, you must define an ACS string to
allow the "Extended Message Information" to appear
on the door's Configuration Menu. Then you must
toggle this option on through the door. This will
cause the door to pass the messages to the reader
exactly as-is, with no message 'stripping'.

THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR CONFIGURATION EDITOR (continued)
--------------------------------------------------------

The Logging Level Editor
------------------------

The Blue Wave Mail Door allows you to "build" your own
custom log file format. Of course, if you want to disable
logging completely, you may do that, too. Simply set all of
the fields described below to "No", or give the door a null
string in the DIRECTORIES AND FILEPATHS Menu for the Log
File Name. You can choose to log or ignore the following
entries:

Scanning Information:
If this option is enabled, the door will write
into your log file a detailed account of what
messages were scanned by a user online. It
includes a Keyword count, a count of NEW messages,
a Filter count, and a count of the personal
messages.

All logging done by this function will have a ":"
symbol preceding the log entry. To toggle these
entries ON/OFF, press the ':' keys.

Bundling Information:
This option is similar to the Scanning Information
function, except it writes an entry for each area
BUNDLED.

All logging done by this function will have a "+"
symbol preceding the log entry. To toggle these
entries ON/OFF, press the '+' key.

Upload Information:
This option will log all messages that were
uploaded through The Blue Wave Mail Door. With
this option enabled, an entry will be made for
each message a user uploads in a packet, including
information about who the message is TO, who it
was FROM, the subject of the message, and the area
to which the message was tossed.

All logging done by this function will have a "@"
symbol preceding the log entry. To toggle these
entries ON/OFF, press the '@' key.

Error Messages:
This option will log all errors encountered by the
door. All logging done by this function will have
a '!' symbol preceding the log entry. Press the
'!' key to toggle these log entries ON/OFF.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 16









THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR CONFIGURATION EDITOR (continued)
--------------------------------------------------------

Scanning and Bundling Totals:
With this option enabled, the door will write the
total number of messages scanned and the total
messages bundled to the log file. Please note
that this is a GRAND TOTAL. In order to get a
total number of messages that were scanned and
bundled by AREA, please see the previous page
regarding SCANNING INFORMATION and BUNDLING
TOTALS.

All logging done by this function will have a "*"
symbol preceding the log entry. To toggle these
entries ON/OFF, press the '*' key.

Log General Activity:
This option is primarily a "catch-all" for those
who would like a log file, but not a detailed
account of events. General activity will log
things such as "Joe User Entering The Blue Wave
Mail Door at 9600 Baud", "Scanning Message Areas",
and "Bundling Messages".

If you want totals and other information included,
please use some fo the above mentioned logging
levels.

All logging done by this function will have a '='
symbol preceding the log entry. To toggle these
entries ON/OFF, press the '=' key.

THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR CONFIGURATION EDITOR (continued)
--------------------------------------------------------

The Protocol Definitions Editor
-------------------------------
The Protocol Definitions Editor will allow you to define the
protocols that are allowed to be used by users while
downloading and uploading their mail packets.

When The Blue Wave Mail Door is initialized, several
protocol command lines were inserted as examples. You may
need to edit these default command lines to suit your system
setup.

Default Protocol:
When the door is first initialized, it marks
protocol #1 as the default for new users. If you
would like to make another protocol the default,
go to the protocol desired and type the "D" key.
This protocol will now be used as the default
protocol.

There ALWAYS needs to be a default protocol
defined. Because of this, if protocol #1 is
defined as "default", typing the "D" key will not
turn it off. If you wish another protocol to be
the default, you will need to move to the desired
protocol and select "D". The previously defined
default protocol will be set to "No" in the
default field automatically!

Batch Protocol:
The Blue Wave Mail Door needs to know if the
current protocol is a BATCH protocol. If a
protocol is marked as BATCH, the door will handle
File requesting differently. Single-file
protocols will require that the user downloads
their file requests at the time they perform their
upload session. If a user is using a batch
protocol, they will be given the option of
downloading the files immediately after their
request upload, OR during their mail download
session! The files gathered by the door will
always be sent as a "batch" when the protocol is
so tagged.

Protocol Hotkey:
This option selects the "Hotkey" used to
select/deselect the protocol from the door's
CONFIGURATION menu while a user is online. This
key should not conflict with other protocol
hotkeys being used. "Q" should also not be used,
since it is used internally by The Blue Wave Mail
Door for the "(Q)uit" command.

THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR CONFIGURATION EDITOR (continued)
--------------------------------------------------------

Protocol Title:
This option allows you to define the title of the
protocol that is displayed to users in the
CONFIGURATION menu of the door when they are
online. This description should be kept as short
as possible, to aviod a "messy" appearance on the
selection screen. Suggested names are "Zmodem",
"Xmodem", "Ymodem", "Xmodem 1-K", etc.

Download (Send) Command Line:
Upon initialization of The Blue Wave Mail Door,
BWUtils inserted some sample protocols and command
lines. In most cases, these command lines should
work just fine. However, you *may* have to edit
them in order for the door to work correctly on
your system.

If you do need to edit the command line, you need
to be aware of 3 "metacharacters" used by the
door. These metacharactes are replaced by
parameters when the door executes its shell to the
protocols.

%P Use the %P where you wish the port number to
be passed to the external protocol.
%B Use the %B where you wish the baud rate of the
caller to be passed to the external protocol.
(NOTE: Those running LOCKED COM PORTS will
probably want to avoid using the %B parameter.
Instead, pass the locked baud rate directly to
the protocol, if it needs it.
%F Use the %F where you wish the file name to be
passed to the external protocol.

Here is an example of both a locked com port setup
and an unlocked port setup using DSZ's Zmodem with
MobyTurbo:
LOCKED BAUD AT 19200:
dsz port %p speed 19200 estimate 0 %b sz -m %f
UNLOCKED PORT
dsz port %p speed %b sz -m %f

NOTES ABOUT PROTOCOL COMMAND LINES
----------------------------------
If the protocol you wish to execute is located
somewhere on your DOS PATH statement, it is not
necessary to provide the complete path to the
protocol. If, on the other hand, your protocols
are NOT located on the PATH, you will need to
specify the complete drive, path, filename, and
extension in order for the door to find it.

Upload (Receive) Command Line:
The upload command line follows the same basic
rules as the DOWNLOAD command line. The upload
command line is used by the door to receive a mail
packet from the remote user.

Before executing the UPLOAD command line, the door
changes to the directory where the upload packet
will go. This will allow the use of external
protocols that only allow uploads to the current
directory.

THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR CONFIGURATION EDITOR (continued)
--------------------------------------------------------


The Archiver Definitions Editor
-------------------------------
As with the protocols, the door initialization module
installed some sample archivers. Some editing may be
necessary in order for the archivers to work correctly. The
archivers are used to compress downloaded mail bundles
before sending them to the user.

Default Archiver:
This field allows you to define the Default
Archiver for new users to The Blue Wave Mail Door.
(A user may later change his/her default from the
door's CONFIGURATION menu.) As with protocols,
there must always be a default archiver defined.
Because of this, if archiver #1 is set to the
default, you will NOT be able to disable it. To
select another archiver to be the default, move to
the correct definition number, and type the letter
"D". Any previously marked default archivers will
be toggled off automatically.

Archiver Hotkey:
This field allows you to define the "Hotkey" used
to select the current archiver from the door's
CONFIGURATION Menu. You should be careful not to
duplicate hotkeys between different archivers
(such as using "Z" for .ZIP and "Z" for .ZOO,
both). The letter "Q" should also not be used, as
this is used internally by the door for a "(Q)uit"
menu option. Any other alpha-numeric character,
however, is OK.

Archiver Title:
This is the short, 3 letter extension used by the
archiver. You should probably make it match the
"standard" extension so as to not confuse your
users. Examples of popular archivers would
include "ZIP", "ARC", "PAK", "LZH", and "ZOO".

Archiver Compress Command Line:
Here you will define the command line used to
compress your users' mail packets. The Blue Wave
Mail Door supports 2 "metacharacters" in the
compression command lines, and will be described
on the next page.

WARNING: LHARC *will* hang your system if you do
not give it the proper command line. The door
uses "non-standard" filename extensions, and LHARC
will complain. See the next page for a sample.

Page 21









THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR CONFIGURATION EDITOR (continued)
--------------------------------------------------------

Archiver Decompress Command Line:
Here you will define the command line used to
decompress your users' uploaded mail packets.

NOTE: It should be mentioned that there MUST BE ENOUGH
MEMORY FREE ON YOUR SYSTEM TO RUN THE EXTERNAL ARCHIVERS!
If you are getting "Out of Memory or Disk Space" errors, and
you have plenty of disk space, you will need to either
enable SWAPPING within The Blue Wave Mail Door, or make
Telegard's SWAP function active.

Archiver Command Line Metacharacters
------------------------------------
@F Inserts the directory/filename of the file to be BUILT
when used in the compress command line. When used in
the Decompress command line, the door inserts the
directory/filename of the file to be DECOMPRESSED.

@I When used in the Compress command line, the door
inserts the directory and filename of the dfiles to
INCLUDE in the archive. When used in the DECOMPRESS
command line, the door inserts the directory/filename
of the place where the extracted files will be placed
(the door's WORK directory).

Sample Command Lines for Popular Archivers
------------------------------------------
The following examples have been tested with their
respective archivers and work well:

PKZIP @F @I ZIP Compression command line
PKUNZIP @F @I ZIP Decompression command line

PKARC -a @F @I ARC Compression command line
PKXARC -e @F @I ARC Decompression command line

LHARC a /m @F @I LZH Compression command line
LHARC e /m @F @I LZH Decompression command line

PAK a @F @I PAK Compression command line
PAK e @F @I PAK Decompression command line

ARJ a @F @I ARJ Compression command line
ARJ e @F @I ARJ Decompression command line

elsewhere in the documentation. Please see the section
regarding NETMAIL OPERATIONS, later in the documentation.

INSTALLING THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR INTO TELEGARD
------------------------------------------------

If you have installed other external programs into your Telegard
setup, you should have absolutely no problem installing The Blue Wave
Mail Door. In order for the door to execute properly, it needs to
have its data files and help files in the current directory. This
means that you will probably have to run The Blue Wave Mail Door from
a batch file.

The Blue Wave Mail Door requires some information from Telegard in
order to know who is online, at what baud rate, etc. In order to
accomplish this, The Blue Wave Mail Door will look for a DOOR.SYS file
in your Telegard MAIN directory. When installing The Blue Wave Mail
door into your Telegard menu(s), it will be necessary to inform
Telegard to write a DOOR.SYS file before shelling to DOS to run your
BLUEWAVE.BAT file. (DOOR.SYS is used by GAP doors, and is somewhat of
a 'standard' interface between BBS programs and external utilities and
doors).

The following is what your Telegard Menu Editor screen should look
like:

1. Long descript :(B)lue Wave Mail System for Offline Reading
2. Short descript:(B)lue Wave Mail
3. Cmd letters :B
4. ACS required :s30
5. Cmdkeys :DG
6. MString :bluewave.bat
Q. Quit


Sample BLUEWAVE.BAT batch file:
-------------------------------
cd\bbs\bluewave
bwmail
cd\bbs
exit
-------------------------------













-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 24










COMMAND LINE PARAMETERS
-----------------------

WarpSpeed AutoDownload Mode (-d)
--------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door has a special command line parameter
to force the door into download mode, and exit. When the
door is executed with the -d parameter, it immediately
begins scanning the message areas and bundles a mail packet.
If there is a remote user, the door will immediately fire up
the appropriate protocol, and then exit back to the BBS. If
there is no remote user, the door skips executing the
protocol, and drops back to the calling batch file. This is
extremely handy for local use in batch files to possibly
build a mail bundle during a maintenance "event". The door
will NOT prompt for user input during the entire session.

AutoUpload Mode (-u)
--------------------
Specifying -U on the command line will cause the door to
immediately go into upload mode. This parameter works the
same as the AutoDownload Parameter; the user will never be
prompted for input during the mail session.



Local Color Override (-m)
-------------------------
Specifying -M on the command line will force the door to not
output color to the local console. This is especially
useful for BBS systems running on a monochrome monitor.


Download Directory Override (-down=)
------------------------------------------
If the command line for the door contains the command line
-DOWN=c:\bbs\bluewave\local_dl, the door will pack the mail
into a bundle in the alternate subdirectory, rather than the
download directory specified within BWUTILS.


Upload Directory Override (-upload=)
------------------------------------------
Like the -down= command line, the door will look for
uploaded mail packets in the alternate directory specified
if the command line contains the -upload= command
line. This overrides the directory specified within
BWUTILS.

Work Directory Override (-work=)
--------------------------------------
The -work= command line will override the BWUTILS
default setting for the WORK directory, just as the above 2
examples do.
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 25











MAINTAINING THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR
-----------------------------------

Careful thought has gone into making The Blue Wave Mail Door easy to
maintain. If you ran a copy of The Blue Wave Mail Door prior to
v2.70, you will probably remember that the door used to keep its own
set of message area definitions. The door now reads message area
definitions directly out of BOARDS.DAT, so maintenance is now even
easier. Once you have added/deleted message areas from Telegard, they
are automatically updated within the door.


BWUTILS UPDATE
--------------
Because The Blue Wave Mail Door no longer stores its own set
of message area information, the BWUTILS UPDATE command
(used in previous versions of the door) is no longer
necessary.



BWUTILS PURGE xx
----------------
BWUTILS also contains a semi-automatic user deletion
function. If you were to execute "BWUTILS PURGE 30" at the
DOS prompt, the user file would be purged of all users who
have not completed a download within 30 days. You may
specify any number of days on the command line, in the place
of 30. However, it is advised not to purge your user file
too low, or you may have some very upset users. Once a name
is purged from the user file, they will be recognized as a
NEW Blue Wave Mail Door User, and they will have to go
through their entire configuration process again. This
option is also well suited for batch file maintenance, as it
does not wait for input from the keyboard.

Example Nightly Maintenance Batch File
--------------------------------------
{some maintenance items here}
cd\bbs\bluewave
bwutils purge 60
cd\bbs
{more maintenance items here}

GENERAL OVERVIEW OF DOOR OPERATIONS
-----------------------------------

Now that we have examined the operation of BWUTILS in detail, and you
have gone through the initial installation of the door, it seems
appropriate to discuss (in general terms) the operations of the door
itself.

The Blue Wave Mail Door interfaces with Telegard almost seamlessly.
The main bridge between Telegard and The Blue Wave Mail Door is the
DOOR.SYS file.

The DOOR.SYS file contains some important information that The Blue
Wave Mail Door uses to initialize itself when first executed. In
fact, the door will not run at all if it cannot find a DOOR.SYS file
in your Telegard directory (unless the door is run in local mode with
the -K parameter, described in the section regarding COMMAND LINE
PARAMETRS).

If you are attempting to run The Blue Wave Mail Door in LOCAL MODE,
and you get a message that says "LOST CARRIER" on your screen, chances
are that the DOOR.SYS file that the door is reading does not contain
your information, contains something other than COM0:, and you are not
using the -K command line parameter.

Also during initialization, all 3 of the door's PRIVATE directores are
purged of any files thay may be lurking around and ready to cause
trouble during the door operation. For this reason, you should make
sure NEVER to store files in the private directories (UPLOAD,
DOWNLOAD, and WORK) that you plan on keeping.

After the door has initialized itself, and prepared for operation, the
user will be shown either the file BWINTRO.TXT (if they have neither
ANSI nor AVATAR selected in Telegard), or BWINTRO.ANS for those with
graphics enabled. If the user has never used The Blue Wave Mail
System before, they will then be shown the text in the file
NEWUSER.HLP, and then their default settings. Otherwise, they will be
taken to the Main Menu.

From the Main Menu, a user is able to configure their setup, upload
new mail, or download their mail packet. Full information on using
The Blue Wave Mail Door follows later in the documentation.

Keys Used While a User is Online
--------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door contains several keys that you, as a
sysop, can press while a user is online. The door is always
in "simultaneous keyboard mode", meaning that whatever you
type on the local keyboard will also be echoed and processed
to/for the remote user.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 27









GENERAL OVERVIEW OF DOOR OPERATIONS (continued)
-----------------------------------------------

However, there are "Special" key combinations that do not
echo to the remote user or affect their input. Before we
discuss the "Sysop Keys", let's explain a little bit about
the status bar on the bottom row of your screen.

The status bar is not visible to your remote users, of
course. During normal operation, you will only see 1
visible line, however, there are actually 2 lines that make
up the status bar display. When you press your sysop keys,
additional information will fill the "second" status line,
just above the normal one. This additional information will
be cleared, and the status bar updated every 10 seconds.
Please remember that anything shown on the bottom 2 lines of
your display is not echoed to the remote user!

The Key:
Anytime a user is online, you can press the
key to get help on the keys available to you.
They will be displayed on the STATUS BAR at the
bottom of the screen.

The Key:
The key will display extended information
about the current user, including their Real Name
and CITY. The information, as with all of the
sysop keys, will be cleared in about 10 seconds
for a more "tidy" appearance.

The Key:
Ever have a user that is just plain annoying, and
likes to see how much he can abuse your hard drive
by scanning and bundling ten million times in one
session? The key will help you deal with
them. It performs a disconnect (drops modem DTR),
and exits the door, returning control to Telegard.

The Key:
The key will perform a local shell to DOS.
Don't worry, the remote user won't be able to see
what you are doing.

The Key:
The key will raise the user's online time
for this session by 10 minutes. The total time
remaining is displayed on line 1 of the status
bar.

The Key:
The key will raise the current user's
online time by 1 minute.


-----------------------------------------------------------------

GENERAL OVERVIEW OF DOOR OPERATIONS (continued)
-----------------------------------------------
The Key:
The Key will lower the current user's
online time by 10 minutes.

The Key:
The Key will lower the current user's
online time by 1 minute.

Carrier Checking
----------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door performs its own carrier detect
function. If at any time a user hangs up on the system, the
door will detect it, clean its private directories, and exit
back to Telegard. If the door is in the process of building
a mail bundle, the door will exit as soon as it is safe to
do so. Sometimes this may take a second or two because the
files have to be flushed and closed before the door can
exit. Do not be alarmed, if during the scanning or bundling
process, that it takes a couple of seconds for the door to
react.

People have expressed concern over the fact that, while a
bundle is being archived, the door does not exit
immediately. The fact is that while an external archiver is
working, the door does not have control over your computer.
There is no way for the door to "reach out and grab" the
archiver and exit. The archiver will continue to bundle the
mail packet until it is finished. The door will exit
immediately when it regains control of your system.


Inactivity Timer
----------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door has a built-in inactivity timer
which will disconnect a user after 4 minutes of inactivity.

Twenty seconds before the automatic disconnection takes
place, a user will be given a "second chance" to show that
he is still alive. If a key still is not pressed, the door
will lower your modem's DTR and exit back to Telegard,
unless "Hang up on Input Timeout" in the BWUTILS OPTIONS
editor is set to "No". In this case, the door will simply
return control to Telegard.

Rest assured that by pressing your SYSOP KEYS (described
earlier), the inactivity timer will *not* be reset. If a
user has been inactive for 3 minutes, and you happen to type
ALT-N to see more information about him/her, the inactivity
timer will still be set at 3 minutes. However, if you press
one of the "normal" keys, the timer will be reset, just as
if the remote user had entered the keystroke.

Page 29











OFFLINE CONFIGURATIONS
----------------------

The Blue Wave Mail System contains a built-in Offline configuration
function. There is absolutely nothing to configure for this function
to operate properly within The Blue Wave Mail Door. Everything is
automatic.

When a user wants to perform an offline configuration, all of the
information is entered through the reader. The next time that they
sign onto the BBS and upload their mail packet through The Blue Wave
Mail Door, the door will process their offline configuration.

Through the reader's offline configuration menu, users are able to
change everything about their door setup, except for the selection of
protocols and archivers. Even message areas can be toggled on and off
through offline configurations!



































-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 30











SENDING NETMAIL THROUGH THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR
-----------------------------------------------

The Blue Wave Mail Door fully supports Fidonet netmail. Both the
reader and the door have full netmail capabilities, and can address
mail FROM Point systems, TO Point systems, and even handle mail from
one zone to another!


Extended attach flags, used by FrontDoor and D'Bridge, are also
supported. The DIRECT and IMM(ediate) flags are used to control the
handling of your netmail. If you are using a mailer that does not
understand these extended flags (a ^AFLAGS line), then you may want to
set these bits to be "hidden" so that you don't have to deal with
them.

If netmail is uploaded through The Blue Wave Mail Door which is
destined for another Zone, the door writes the proper ^AINTL: line to
handle the routing of the mail. To determine whether or not the
netmail is destined for another zone, the door compares your DEFAULT
network address (zone) to the destination zone of the message. If
they are different, the ^AINTL: line is written.


Each netmail message uploaded will be logged to your log file (if you
have enabled the UPLOAD INFORMATION logging (@)). The log entry will
contain the cost information and the destination of the uploaded
message. Obviously, you should be cautious about the people you allow
to have access to the Netmail area.


How Netmail is Handled
----------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door handles netmail through COST
lookups. If you allow access to your netmail area through
the door and reader, all user-entered messages will be
checked against the cost that you have defined to send to a
particular node. If a user does not have enough credits to
send a message, the door will refuse to save it.

Through the BWUTILS editor, you will find a menu option
titled "NETMAIL CONFIGURATION". There are several ACS
fields that you can define here. If a base is defined as
NETMAIL within Telegard, the Netmail Configuration Editor
fields (described below) will take precedence over the
Telegard settings.






-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 31










The ACS strings deal with the "bits" that a user is allowed
to place on a netmail message. If a user has access to any
of these bits, the user will be prompted while entering a
message in the reader whether or not to set each bit that
they have access to. Obviously, the ACS to post FileRequest
messages and FileAttach messages should be set to an
appropriate level!


Bits to ALWAYS place on Netmail:
You can define 5 bits to ALWAYS place on netmail
messages. The door places these bits on all mail
uploaded through the door, whether or not the USER
has access to toggle their status. If you would
like all users' messages uploaded through the door
to have HOLD placed on them, set this bit
appropriately. You can do the same for DIRECT,
CRASH, KILL/SENT, and PRIVATE.



































-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 32










Netmail COST Tables and Definitions
-----------------------------------
As mentioned earlier, the door determines whether a user can
send a message to a particular node through cost lookups.
You have 2 options to define the cost table the door uses.
For those that wish to compile a Binkley/Opus version 6
nodelist, enter the path to your nodelist files in the
"NODELIST DIRECTORY" field. The door will look up costs
through the nodelist directly. If you are using a Binkley
nodelist, it is your Nodelist processor's job to insert the
cost for each node into the nodelist. You can compile a
version 6 nodelist with programs such as XLAXLIST, SYSNL, or
PARSELIST.

If you do not wish to compile a BinkleyTerm nodelist, you
will have to define the cost for each node through the
door's internal cost lookup tables.

The door allows you to define up to 6 cost lookup entries.
These entries are referred to as COST INDEXES.

With each of these 6 cost indexes, you can define the nodes
that belong to each cost. Think of each index as a "box".
Any message that is addressed to a node in box #1 will be
assigned the cost associated with index 1. Nodes listed in
box 5 will be assigned the cost associated with index 5.
Any nodes that are not in ANY of the boxes will be assigned
the cost defined for "COST FOR UNLISTED NODES".

The best way to explain how to use the cost indexes is
through an example. Let's suppose that you are node
2240/176. Here is how you want to define your costs:

1) Nodes in net 2240 are FREE calls, or a cost of 0.
2) Points off of 1:2240/176 are FREE calls.
3) Nodes in net 3300 are toll calls, with a cost of 10.
4) All other nodes in Zone 1 you want to have a cost of 20.
5) Nodes in Zone 2 you want to have a cost of 250.
6) ALL other nodes you wish to have a cost of 300.

In the BWUTILS editor, while in the NETMAIL CONFIGURATION
Menu, you would do the following:

Press the "!" key. This will allow you to edit the cost
assigned to the nodes in "box" 1. For our example, you
would set this to "0". Now, press the "1" key. This will
bring up a window, allowing you to define the nodes with a
cost index of 0. Now, we want to enter all of the nodes
that you are going to assign the cost of 0 to. (This will
be all nodes in net 2240, including your point systems).
There are several ways that you can do this. Three ways
will be shown so that you may see the flexibility allowed
while defining nodes for each cost index.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 33










Here is what you could enter in the cost lookup window for
nodes with a cost index of 0.

1:2240/103 2240/104 2240/105 2240/106 2240/107 2240/108
2240/110 2240/176 2240/176.1 2240/176.2 2240/176.3

- or -

1:2240/103 104 105 106 107 108 110 176 .1 .2 .3

- or -

1:2240/All

All three of these examples have the same effect. The long,
tedious one is shown as an example of how NOT to do it.
(You *can* enter it this way, but why not simplify things?).

The door interprets the node numbers from beginning to end.
The shorthand method used by several mailer programs is
supported. The keyword "ALL" is also valid in all
situations:

1:All Refers to all nodes in Zone 1
2240/All Refers to all nodes in Net 2240
2240/176.All Refers to all POINTS of node 176.
3:All Refers to all nets/nodes in Zone 3.
All "Catch-all". This includes EVERYONE!

Now, to continue our example. We need to define all nodes
in net 3300 (Zone 1 assumed) to have a cost of 10. Simply
press the "@" key, and type the number 10. Now, press the
"2" key, and another window will pop up asking you to define
all nodes with a cost index of 10. In this box, simply
enter:

1:3300/All

Now we need to define all nodes in Zone 2 as costing 250.
Type the "#" key, and then enter 250 in the field. Then,
type the "3" key, and enter the following:

2:All

Simple, isn't it? Now, for the last part of our example, we
need to define nodes in Zone 3 with a cost of 300. Just
type "$", then enter 300 in the field. Then type "4", and
enter the following string:

3:All



-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 34










At this point, we have completed our example situation. If
you think the cost table through before defining it, it
should be very easy to control the cost of messages entered
on your system.

When the door looks up an address, it always begins looking
in index 1. If a match to the node is not found, it
continues to index 2, and so on. If, after index 6 is
processed, and still no match was found, the door uses the
"COST FOR UNLISTED NODES" field. If you never want users to
send mail to nodes not listed, set this cost to something
outrageosly high. If a match is found in one of the index
lookup tables, the door will use the cost defined for that
index to determine whether or not a user can upload the
message.

Let's suppose a user is online, and tries to upload a
message to 3:111/111. In our above example, we have told
the door that all messages destined for Zone 3 were to cost
300. The door would check the user's record for the amount
of CREDITS and DEBITS that the current user has.

Credits and debits are given to each user by YOU. In order
for a user to send mail to a node that costs credits, they
must have enough in their "netmail account" to send the
message, or the door will reject the upload.

If Joe User sends you $5.00 for netmail credits, you simply
go into the BWUTILS User Editor, and put "500" in the user's
account, or CREDITS. The door will NEVER subtract from the
credits field. Instead, it ADDS to the debits field when a
user uploads messages. The door then computes the user's
balance before allowing the upload (CREDITS-DEBITS=BALANCE).

Now suppose Joe User has used 250 of his credits on
previously entered netmail. The balance in his account is
now 250. (500-250=250). If he were to try to upload a
message to a zone 3 address, it would be rejected, since we
have told our door that zone 3 addresses cost 300 credits.
However, if it was to a Zone 2 address, which we have
defined as 250 credits, the door would allow the upload.
The user's balance would now be 0. (The credits would be
500, and the debits would be 500).

As you can see, this gives you great control over your
outbound netmail. If you are the sysop, remember to give
yourself some credits, or the door will not allow YOU to
enter non-0 credit netmail messages, either!

FILE REQUESTING THROUGH THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR
-----------------------------------------------

The Blue Wave Mail Door allows users to download files from your BBS,
if you have enabled the option to do so. If you do not want the file
request function to be active, you can set the "Maximum File Requests
per Session" to 0. Otherwise, The Blue Wave Mail Door will accept
them.

When a user requests that a file be sent with his or her mail packet,
the door performs all necessary checks to be sure that they actually
have access to download the file, and that their upload/download
ratio, if active, is in balance. The door also performs FILE POINTS
checking.

Any files that are requested are logged to your log file. The door
also updates a user's DOWNLOAD K and Total Downloads for each file
request made. If file points are in effect, the user's file points
will also be decreased by the appropriate amount.

USING THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR
-----------------------------

Although most of the time you spend using The Blue Wave Mail System
will be spent in the Offline Reader Environment, much of the power and
potential for online savings of time and money will come through using
the Blue Wave Mail Door to its full potential. In order to get the
fullest out of The Blue Wave Mail Door, it is necessary to become
familiar with the operating procedures in the door.



The Configuration Menu
----------------------

This section will describe all of the commands available to you
through the Blue Wave Mail Door's Configuration Menu. At first
glance, the Configuration Menu may seem overwhelming. Please do not
let this scare you off. The mail system was carefully designed to
provide each individual user with options not available in other mail
systems. Each menu item will be described below, along with a short
description of where, how and/or why the command would be useful in
any given situation, if the command description is not obvious

Choose Message Areas
--------------------
When selecting "C", you will be displayed a list of all
LOCAL, ECHOMAIL, and GROUPMAIL bases available to you. Here
you will be able to select and deselect message areas for
download through the Blue Wave Mail Door. To toggle the
status of a message base, enter the base number or
number/letter combination associated with the message area.
You may enter more than one message base number at a time;
simply separate them by spaces.

Reset Lastread Pointers
-----------------------
Selecting "R" from the Configuration Menu will allow you to
reset the pointers indicating which messages have been read,
and which have not been read. The door will ask you how
many DAYS you would like to "go back". Entering a 0 here
will set your pointers to the current date and time (no mail
will be found for download during a subsequent scan until
more mail has been imported into the bases.)

Entering any number other than 0 will reset your pointers to
the specified number of days. (Entering a '1' would set
your pointers back 24 hours. Entering a '2' would set your
lastread pointers back 48 hours, and so on.)




-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 37









USING THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR (continued)
-----------------------------------------
You will then be asked if you would like to reset your
pointers in ALL areas, or in SELECTED areas. Choosing "All"
will reset the pointers for all bases (even those that you
are not currently downloading). Selecting "S" will reset
the message pointers in ONLY the areas that you are
downloading. In most cases, you will want to select "S".


Archiver Selection
------------------
Selecting "A" from the door's Configuration Menu will allow
you to select the archiver of your choice, from those
defined by the Sysop. The archiver will be used to compress
(Mash) the mail packet before you download it.


Protocol Selection
------------------
Selecting "P" from the Configuration Menu will allow you to
select the transfer protocol of your choice, from those
defined by the Sysop. The protocol will be used during a
download of a mail packet, the upload of a mail packet, and
any File Request sessions that you may make.


HotKeys
-------
The Blue Wave Mail Door defaults to using "HotKeys" for a
new user. The HotKey option allows you to select menu
commands without having to press ENTER after each selection.
Obviously, however, it will be necessary to press ENTER
after some commands that require input of more than one
character. With extremely noisy phone line conditions,
HotKeys may not be desirable.


Xpert Help Menus
----------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door defaults to using FULL help menus.
However, after you become comfortable with the door, you may
wish to turn off the full help menus. With Xpert Mode
enabled, only the menu title, command keys, and time
remaining are displayed.


View Settings
-------------
This command simply displays the status of the following
options: HotKeys, Xpert Mode, Archiver Selection, Protocol
Selection, and the Password (SECURE) option.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 38









USING THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR (continued)
-----------------------------------------
Set Password Option
-------------------
The Password, or Secure option is unique to The Blue Wave
Mail System. Although some may question its usefulness,
there are several situations where you may wish to enable
this feature. There are 4 levels of security available:

* Password prompting in the DOOR only.
* Password prompting in the READER only.
* Password prompting in the READER and DOOR.
* No password prompting (DEFAULT).

In a situation where you download sensitive areas from the
BBS, and use the Blue Wave Offline Mail Reader on a machine
that is shared by several other users, you may wish to add
the secure option to the READER only. Each mail packet will
be encrypted with a password. If a user tries to read a
packet encrypted with a password, they will be prompted to
enter it. If the user does not get the correct password
after three tries, the reader will NOT allow them to read
the mail packet.

Another situation may occur where Father downloads sensitive
mail, and does not wish for Daughter, Son, or Wife to read
it. It may be useful to set the secure option in both the
READER and DOOR, since it is possible that the family knows
Father's BBS password. By prompting for a password when
entering the door (obviously one that is different from the
BBS password), he has another layer of security.


Bundle Messages From YOU
------------------------
If this option is ON, mail that is on the BBS with your name
in the FROM: field will be bundled and placed in your mail
packet. If this option is OFF, the door will not bundle
messages entered by you. This can help save some transfer
time if you frequently enter a lot of messages.


Graphics (Color) Toggle
-----------------------
If you do not want the door to display ANSI or AVATAR
graphics to the remote user, toggle this option OFF. All
ANSI and AVATAR color sequences will be stripped for
transmission. However, color is always enabled on the local
monitor unless the door is run with the /M(ono) command line
switch.




-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 39









USING THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR (continued)
-----------------------------------------

Extended Message Information
----------------------------
Normally, the door strips ^A and SEEN-BY lines from messages
(when used in a Fidonet-type network) before they are
bundled into the user's download packet. If the user would
like to see this information, this option should be toggled
ON. Otherwise, the default setting of OFF should be used.


Limit Download Packet Size
--------------------------
It may be necessary in some situations for the user to limit
the UNCOMPRESSED packet size that the door generates. If a
user sets this option to cease bundling when the download
packet size reaches 300K, the door will stop bundling and
compress the mail packet that it created. A message is sent
to the user if the Maximum packet size is reached, and the
lastread pointers are updated accordingly.




Keyword Selection
-----------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door allows you to specify up to 10
different Keyword definitions. These keywords will be used
during the mail scanning process to inform you of mail in an
area which contains any one of the keyword definitions. To
get the full use out of keywords, you must use The Blue Wave
Bundling Commands (described later) to instruct the door on
how to handle keywords in certain areas.

The best way to describe the use of keywords is with an
example. Let's suppose that you are looking for Apple
computer equipment to buy in the National For-Sale FidoNet
Echo. Sometimes the FOR-SALE echo generates more than 200
messages per day. Instead of downloading all 200 messages,
of which (possibly) 199 of them are of no interest to you,
you may define the keyword APPLE.

You would then be informed during the SCANNING process of
all mail containing the keyword APPLE. By using the Blue
Wave Bundling Commands, it is possible to ONLY bundle
messages with the Keyword APPLE in them. This, of course,
saves on-line time, and time you would have to spend paging
through the numerous (UNWANTED) messages offline when using
the reader. Naturally, there are many other uses to the
Keywords option. The idea behind keywords is to let The
Blue Wave Mail Door do the work for you!


-----------------------------------------------------------------

Page 40









USING THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR (continued)
-----------------------------------------
Filter Selection
----------------
Like Keywords, The Blue Wave Mail Door allows you to specify
up to 10 FILTERS. Filters essentially work just the
opposite of Keywords. During the door's SCANNING process,
you are informed of messages that contain any of the Filters
that you have defined. After the mail scan is complete, you
can use The Blue Wave Bundling Commands to FILTER the
messages that you do not want to receive.

Again, the best way to describe the usefulness of Filters is
with an example. Let's suppose that Joe Blow in the FidoNet
C Programming Echo is consistently entering messages which
contain false information, is constantly flaming others, and
is being an all around nuisance. Although you really enjoy
reading the C_ECHO, you get tired of seeing messages entered
either from Joe Blow or to Joe Blow. By defining the Filter
of JOE BLOW, you will be flagged if there are any messages
containing the Filter. By using The Blue Wave Bundling
Commands, you can then instruct The Blue Wave Mail Door NOT
to bundle messages containing the Filter JOE BLOW.




The Blue Wave Bundling Commands
-------------------------------

Several Bundling Commands are available to you to make The Blue Wave
Mail System one of the most robust mail systems available today. By
combining The Blue Wave Bundling Commands with Keyword Definitions and
Filter Definitions, you can discriminately select messages ON-LINE to
download, rather than wasting time downloading mail, of which only a
few messages are of any interest. The following section will give an
in-depth description of each Bundling Command available to you, and
examples on how to use each one to build a custom mail packet.

The Blue Wave Mail Door prompts you for your Bundling Commands at the
end of each mail SCAN, just before the system actually gathers mail
for you. After viewing the SCAN TABLE, you can actually select which
areas and/or messages you wish to download. The Bundling Commands
ONLY affect the current download session, and are not saved for later
use. (Unless you have defined them as a MACRO in the door's
configuration menu, or in the reader's OFFLINE configuration). The
default behavior of the door is to gather ALL NEW MAIL. The Blue Wave
Bundling Commands only MODIFY the result.






-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 41









USING THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR (continued)
-----------------------------------------
You can think of The Blue Wave Bundling Commands as a way to
dynamically change the messages that the door has prepared to download
for you. The commands are actually LETTERS and SYMBOLS, followed by
numbers and "key words" which modify the effect of the Command. The
keywords "*" and "all" area recognized by each Bundling Command, and
operate on ALL message areas. (A "K*" would gather Keywords ONLY in
ALL areas).

The Bundling Commands may be "linked" together to form one long
string. To perform multiple commands within the same bundling
command, you simply need to separate them by SPACES. "-2 K9 P14 F22"
is a perfectly valid bundling command. (This example would cause the
door to not bundle messages in area number 2, gather keywords only in
message area number 9, gather only personal mail in area number 14,
and filter out messages in area number 22.)

Deselecting an Area
-------------------
To dynamically (and temporarily) deselect an area from the
message bases that you are downloading, you can use the "-"
bundling command. "-*" or "-ALL" would deselect all message
areas, resulting in a total of 0 messages being downloaded.
"-14" would temporarily deselect area #14. "-P1" would
deselect message area "P1" on systems that use letters as
area names such as Maximus-CBCS.

Format: -

Adding an Area
--------------
To reselect an area which was previously deselected using
the "-" command, use the "+" command. Please note
that it is NOT possible to add a message area to your
download packet that you are not currently scanning. If you
have entered several bundling commands and realize that you
have made a mistake, use the "+*" or "+ALL" command. This
will reselect ALL message areas that you are scanning, and
clear any designation of keywords/personal/filters in all
message areas. In other words, it's the same as starting
new.

Format: +

Bundling Personal Messages Only
-------------------------------
To instruct the door to bundle only your personal mail (mail
addressed either to your login name or real name) in a
message area, use the "P" command. To bundle only your
personal mail in area #23, use "P23". To bundle only
personal mail in ALL areas, use either "P*" or "PALL".

Format: P
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 42









USING THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR (continued)
-----------------------------------------


Bundling Keywords Only
----------------------
To instruct the door to bundle only messages containing your
Keyword definitions, use the "K" bundling command.

WHEN USING THE "K" COMMAND, PERSONAL MAIL IS ALSO BUNDLED,
IF ANY IS FOUND.

To download only keyword messages in area #192, use the
bundling command "K192". If you want to download ONLY
keyword and personal mail in all areas, use "K*" or "KALL".

Format: K


Filtering Messages in an Area
-----------------------------
If you would like the door to skip packing any messages that
contain your filter definitions, use the "F" bundling
command. To filter all messages in area #57, use the
bundling command "F57". To filter messages in ALL message
areas, use the "F*" or "FALL" commands.

Format: F


Bundling a Specified NUMBER of Messages
---------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door has the ability to download a
specified number of messages in any message area. This
command is especially useful when downloading a message area
for the first time, as sort of a "test drive". You may only
want to bundle the last 10 messages in the area to see if
you will enjoy reading that particular message base.

To perform this function, use the "L" bundling command. The
"L" bundling command is a bit different from the rest, as it
takes two parameters, instead of one. To bundle the last 10
messages in area #563, use the command "563L10". To gather
the last 10 messages in ALL areas, use the command "*L10".

The "L" bundling command is also a quick way to override
your lastread message pointers for a particular area. If
you choose to download the last 500 messages in area #3, and
your lastread pointer indicates that only 7 messages are
new, the "L" command will allow you to override the setting
and download all 500 messages. (Use "3L500").

Format: L<# of messages to bundle>

-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 43









USING THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR (continued)
-----------------------------------------

Lastread Pointers and Bundling Commands
---------------------------------------

By default, upon a successful download session through The Blue Wave
Mail Door, the door will update the last read message pointers in ALL
areas that were SCANNED. (Note: If an area was deselected with a "-"
command, it will STILL be updated to reflect the new last read
pointer!) In most cases, this is desirable. However, The Blue Wave
Mail System takes into consideration that all users' needs are
different. The following two Bundling Commands will modify the
default setting regarding message pointers.

No Update of Message Pointers
-----------------------------
If you wish the door NOT to update your message pointers for
one reason or another, use the "N" bundling command. If you
want the door to not save message pointers in area #75, use
the command "N75". To not update message pointers in ALL
areas that you are scanning, use "N*" or "NALL".


Force Update of Message Pointers
--------------------------------
Because the default behavior of the door is to UPDATE
message pointers, this command is only useful to kill the
effect of a previously entered "N" command. Suppose that
you are downloading 50 areas, and only want one message base
updated. You could use the command "N* U2". This would
force the door to ONLY update the pointers in area #2.
After an accidental "N*", a "U*" will correct the mistake.



The "!" Command
---------------
Finally, the "!" command. A "!" anywhere on the command
line tells the Blue Wave Mail Door to NOT prompt for any
more bundling commands once the bundling command has been
processed. By default, the door will process a command
line, calculate a new TOTAL MESSAGES, and display it. You
may the enter more bundling commands, or simply press ENTER
to accept what was already processed, and begin bundling.



Example Bundling Commands
-------------------------

Most of the Blue Wave Bundling Commands described above do very little
good when used alone. By combining the commands, the ultimate in

-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Blue Wave Mail Door for Telegard 2.7 Operations Manual, v2.70
Page 44









USING THE BLUE WAVE MAIL DOOR (continued)
-----------------------------------------
custom mail bundling is available. Several examples follow, but please
remember, there is virtually no end to what can be accomplished!

-ALL +14 K17 F1
This command deselects all areas, adds area #14 for ALL NEW
mail, area #17 for KEYWORDS ONLY, and FILTERS mail in area
#1. The door then calculates a new total, and waits for
more input.

-ALL +14 K17 F1 !
This command does the same thing as the previous example,
except it doesn't prompt for more commands, and begins
bundling immediately.

-14 P2 N18 K1 P22 17L60 F928
This command deselects area #14, gathers personal messages
only in area #2, does not update message pointers for area
#18, selects keywords only in area #1, personal messages
only in area #22, gathers the last 60 messages in area #17,
and filters messages in area #928.
