I've had several requests from users wanting the ability to save only
messages to or from particular users in various conferences. I have
implemented this feature in registered versions in the following manner.


Pressing F4 while in the conference configuration area in QWKCfg will
now start your text editor to edit a list of names for QWKMerge to use
during merge processing. This name list file will be attached to the
current BBS configuration file when it is saved.

Each line of the list should have the following format:

USER NAME {, conf#, conf#, conf#}

Note that the special user name "EVERYONE" is used to override the
selection list for selected conferences. Using the following sample
list:

EVERYONE, 0
ALL
MIKE KING
HERB SMITH, 36, 192

"EVERYONE, 0" will cause QWKMerge to ignore name matching in conference
0 and save all messages without regard to any names in the list.

"ALL" with no conference numbers will cause QWKMerge to save all
messages addressed to ALL in every conference.

Likewise, "MIKE KING" will cause QWKMerge to save all messages to/from
MIKE KING in every conference.

"HERB SMITH, 36, 192" will cause QWKMerge to save all messages to/from
HERB SMITH only in conferences 36 and 192.

The special user name EVERYONE can have up to 10 conference numbers
attached to it. All the others are limited to a maximum of 3 conference
numbers.

IMPORTANT: Don't forget use commas to separate the user names and
conference numbers.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
