    From Nicholas Boel@1:154/10 to All on Friday, November 11, 2016 00:19:16
    Hello All,

    Is there a way in HPT to *not* process empty netmails (ie: ARCmail attach crap from other systems)?

    Regards,
    Nick

    No. You must process them to make decisions like not to process them. :)

    (ie: ARCmail attach crap from other systems)?

    The solution depends on your requirements. Just drop the link. Add a different password in the mailer. Route to non-existing AKA (dummy point of yours) and delete the dummy outbound files. For more complex solutions install a netmail tracker that runs before hpt.

    You may look at the carbon keywords of fidoconfig. There are things like carbonto, carbonmove, carbonfrom, carbonfromarea and even carbondelete. I never
    used that myself but maybe it's enough for your needs. The docs are in fidoconf/docs/fidoconfig.info.

    Regards

    Kai

    I agree. A properly setup mailer on the ARCmail end should delete those attachments during transmission. But when that doesn't happen, they end up in my netmail area. I was just asking here if there was something in the keywords or docs that I didn't see.

    Synchronet has this function, so I had hoped it was more of a widespread feature. :)
