ROBOMAIL 1.3 INSTALLATION KIT 2/13/94
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to RoboMail 1.3!

Thank you for evaluating RoboMail, the ultimate QWK-compatible
message management system for BBS enthusiasts. Before starting
your installation, please verify that you have both files that
are required for installation:

ROBOM13A.ZIP
ROBOM13B.ZIP

Please see the ROBOMAIL.DOC file for simple installation
instructions. One quick note: If you use Robocomm...

>>> DO NOT INSTALL ROBOMAIL INTO YOUR ROBOCOMM DIRECTORY <<<

Have fun!


UPGRADING FROM ANY PREVIOUS VERSION
-----------------------------------

If you have access to the ROBOM13U.ZIP upgrade kit, you should use
it to complete your upgrade to RoboMail 1.3. However, if you do not
have easy access to the upgrade kit, you can still perform the
upgrade by unzipping the contents of ROBOM13A.ZIP and ROBOM13B.ZIP
into your ROBOMAIL directory. Overwrite all files EXCEPT
ROBOMAIL.RTF when prompted to do so. ROBOMAIL.RTF contains your
taglines. If you overwrite it with the small tagline file from the
distribution kit, your taglines will be lost. After unzipping the
files, delete the ROBOMAIL.OVL file. It is no longer needed.
Finally, delete the RMEXIT.MEM file to force a data "re-build" the
next time you enter the program.

When you start RoboMail 1.3 for the first time, RoboMail may go
into its "Abnormal Exit" data-recovery procedures. Simply press
ESCape and then answer "No" when RoboMail asks if another copy is
running. Answer "Yes" to the question which asks for permission to
re-build the data files.

A special ROBOMAIL.HST file has been included in this zip that lists
the changes in this version since version 1.2.

  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/
