MAILPACK FOR LINUX part 2 of 3

Virtually a complete mail package for Linux. Contains Taylor UUCP,
elm v2.3, mail, and smail v3 plus other needed items. Includes plenty
of docs.

HOW TO RE-ASSEMBLE

Your goal is to create mailpack.tar from the three parts into which it
has been split. You will have to obtain the program bsplit for Linux
or a similar program. Bsplit is used to split and join files.

1) Obtain a copy of bsplit or similar program.

2) Obtain the three parts of mailpack: mailpack.-01, mailpack.-02,
and mailpack.-03.

3) enter this command inside of Linux:

bsplit c mailpack.tar mailpack.-01 mailpack.-02 mailpack.-03

4) If all went well you should now have the file mailpack.tar which
you may install in the usual way.

  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/
