# Initialization file for the MR/2 mail reader. This file sets
# run time parameters and options.

# This is where MR2 will look for packets to read and place reply packets

# This is the wildcard file specification to use when searching for
# packets to read.

#Editor=!d:\os2util\q.exe -e\mr2\qstartup.mac
# This is the command MR2 will use when invoking the editor. By default,
# the system PM editor "e" is used. To use QEdit and pass it a start-up
# macro (-e parameter), change this line to read:
# Editor=q -e\mr2\qstartup.mac
# Use NONE if you wish to have your editor running in another window.
# MR/2 will not chain to an editor - it merely tells you to switch
# windows, then waits for you to switch back and press a key.
# An "!" as the first character of the file spec says to open in
# Full Screen mode.

# When preparing to edit reply files, MR/2 can optionally mark these
# files as type "Plain Text" so, for example, the "E" editor will not
# force you to set the type before saving. "None" means don't use
# extended attributes. "Extended" tells MR/2 to set them.

# Temporary file name used when creating replies. This file can be
# specified with a full path, making it easier to edit it in a separate
# window. For instance, C:\Reply is valid

# This controls when the Message header is displayed for editing.
# Options are Before, After or Both.

# Directory where ".Rep" reply packets are built and maintained.

#Tagline=A QWK compatible mail reader for OS/2
# This sets the default tagline for MR2 replies. This string is placed
# at the bottom of each reply, before the reply is edited. You may
# change the tagline via your editor, while composing your reply.
# Example one accesses a file of multiple taglines.
# The second example provides a fixed, non-changing tagline.

# This sets the tagline file access method. RANDOM will skip around
# and randomly select the next tagline. SEQUENTIAL will perform a
# RANDOM seek when MR/2 is first loaded, then move sequentially
# through the file after that.

# This is the file to which messages are appended when they are "saved" or
# filed for later reference. Use the "S" key while viewing a message to
# append it to this file in printable form.

UnZipper=pkunzip -o
# These are the commands used to archive and unarchive your message
# packets. If you use something other than PKZip/UnZip, modify these
# commands appropriately.

# Yes, this is crude - I'll include something more friendly later.
# The first two characters describe the "normal" text color for messages,
# which is shown here as 1E, or Blue background (1) Yellow foreground (E).
# The second two are the quoted-text colors, 17 is Blue background (1)
# with a White foreground (7). The third set of 2 numbers are the
# message header display colors (the From/To/Subject section on top).
# This is the only color configuration support at this time.
# Colors: 0 = Black 1 = Blue 2 = Green 3 = Cyan 4 = Red
# 5 = Magenta 6 = Brown 7 = White 8 = Gray 9 = Light Blue
# A = Lt. Green B = Lt. Cyan C = Lt. Red
# D = Lt. Megenta E = Yellow F = Intense White
# I personally have changed to the second example here, which gives a
# black background with bold-white text, yellow quotes and green header.

# Quoted Text, Normal Text, Background Color
#default = DT_HALFTONE for quotes, normal text/background
# change 1, 2 or all 3; background defaults to LISTBOX

# If set to YES, MR/2 will bypass any messages you've already read.
# The problem with this option is that, if a conference contains only
# previously-read messages, then MR/2 will skip right out of that
# conference - there's no way to get back in.

# Describes how MR/2 will quote the lines of the source message when
# creating a new reply file. The optional %i (which is the only
# parameter-type variable supported at this time) will be replaced by
# the message originator's initials. The quote prefix may be placed
# on EachLine or on the "FirstLine" only (subsequent lines indented).

# When set to YES, MR/2 will not place the quote prefix in front of
# reply-file lines that already are prefixed with quotes. This creates
# (usually) a much cleaner initial reply file.

# You may optionally include the message header in a reply file. This
# is often used with a clever editor "macro" to create sophisticated
# quoting styles not natively supported my MR/2. You must be sure
# to remove all traces of the header before saving the message, as MR/2
# makes no attempt to identify or remove it.

# If set to YES, MR/2 will track the read/replied/saved status of
# every message, as well as your current position in the packet. This
# information is stored as OS/2 extended attributes and will stay
# attached to the file as it is copied or renamed. When a previously
# read packet is reopened, you will be asked if you wish to return to
# you previous position. Answering YES will return you to that spot,
# responding NO will place you at the conference selection screen.

# If you register MR/2, you will be provided with a serialized MR2.ID
# file. As a registered user, you have the right to choose whether
# you wish to display your serial number in your tagline or not.
# Regardless, MR/2 will remove the "NR" (Not Registered) identifier
# from all your tags.

# Specifies the number of lines/screen the display will be set to upon
# entering MR/2. Possibilities are: 25, 28, 34, 40, 43, 50 or 60.
# You may also toggle through these when on the packet selection screen
# by pressing ALT-V.

# Converts Subject, From and To user names to upper-case before saving
# replies, if set to YES. If set to NO, the case you supply is preserved.

# MR/2 will split replies into "multiple" message at somewhere around
# 92 lines if left at YES. Set to NO, no splitting is performed.

;============= Switches Added in version 1.1 ========================

# This keeps lines within reasonable lengths. Using the system "E"
# editor with word-wrap mode causes some problems. The text appears
# to wrap on-screen, but MR/2 has no way of knowing where the editor
# has determined the wrap should be. With this option set, lines are
# word wrapped at this column, avoiding truncated messages.

# The master conference list is stored as found in the BBS's control
# file. If this parameter is omitted or set to NO, this list is
# displayed in its default order. If YES is specified here, the list
# is sorted alphabetically by conference name. NOTE: This is the
# MASTER conference list (i.e., "Write New" message list).

# This parameter defines what MR/2 does when parameters are provided
# on the command line (or via "association"). If set to YES, MR/2
# exits when all packets listed as command line parameter have been
# read. If NO, then MR/2 simply returns to the packet selection
# screen. NOTE: If no paramaters are passed on the command line, this
# option has no effect. See the file for more detail.

# May be set to "Subject" or "None" and specifies the reading order of
# messages. When Subject is chosen, many extra "thread" related keys
# become available. For instance, the TAB and BACKSPACE key can be used
# to skip through threads, and the "Q" key will invoke a thread summary
# menu.

# May be used to tell MR/2 to make a tone while paging through messages,
# when the "thread" changes. Uncomment the line and play with the
# numbers - let me know how useful this is to you 🙂

;============= Switches Added in version 1.3 ========================

BeepOnPersonals = Yes
# Turns the "beep" when a personal message is displayed off and on.
# Specify YES is you want MR/2 to beep on your personal messages, NO
# for silent running.

GoToLastRead = No
# If set to YES, will suppress the "do you wish to return to your
# previous reading position" prompt and jump there automatically.

BackupOldReplies = Yes
# If YES is specified, any .REP file that is to be deleted is frist
# copied to a .OLD file. If NO is specified, the .REP files are
# deleted and no backup is performed.

##### NewMessageEditor=E
# This is an optional entry. If you wish to run a different editor
# for NEW messages, or run the same editor with different startup
# macros for NEW messages, specify it here. This NEW editor is
# also used to edit News, Bulletins and Newfile listings. If not
# specified, the base editor is always used.

MouseMode = DoubleClick

# Can be set to DoubleClick (the new default) or SingleClick (the
# old way). Double click will be required to select any entry from
# a selection list. In SingleClick mode, a single mouse click will
# select an entry. DoubleClicking is provided for use with the new
# "mouse menus".

MouseClickSpeed = 500
# The maximum time, in miliseconds, between mouse clicks for them to
# be considered "double" clicks.

MouseScrollSpeed = 1
# Controls the speed of scrolling when you park the mouse on a scroll
# arrow and hold the left mouse button down. A value of one is the
# fastest you can get right now, if this is too fast for you, raise
# this number. This represents the number of milliseconds delay before
# MR/2 generates a psuedo mouse click for you.

#Check = Subject
# See SEARCH.INI for an example of how this is used.

;============= Switches Added in version 0.98 =======================

SuppressVersionInTagline = NO
# This controls tagline generation for registered users only.
# Specifying YES here will create taglines without the MR/2 version
# number. You may also suppress the serial number by setting
# SerialInTag to NO. These two switches together will cause an
# MR/2 signiture like: " * MR/2 * Tagline goes here"

# This option has been around for a long time; just never documented.
# This controls the type of tearline and tagline characters used. If
# set to PCBoard (just now changed to the default), you get the
# customary three dashed followed by the MR/2 identifier surrounded
# by hi-end ASCII characters "þ". If set to Fidonet mode, underlines
# replace the dashes, and "*"'s are used as delimiters.

# This is a template file used in the creation of your replies.
# When you reply to any message, MR/2 will format the reply
# as defined by this file. This allows for the creation of
# attribution and signature lines. Variables are available for
# accessing source message and system data (e.g., FROM and DATE).
# See the file and/or MR2.doc for more details.

  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:
