    Can someone in the know kindly share their pack and unpack lines for RAR running under a windows system?

    With thanks, Paul

    I'm not in the know ;), but this is what I use in FMail:

    rar a -y -s -m5 -ep -idcp
    unrar e -c- -y -idcp

    (filenames are added to those by FMail itself)

    Bye, Wilfred.

    agreed... especially with today's little traffic... granted, there's a *lot* of
    PKTs being flung around all the time but packing mail into bundles really isn't
    needed any more...

    If mail is on hold for points, it may be better to zip it into one file instead
    of sending half a million .pkt's.

    I prefer receiving mail zipped to my point.

    But no RAR needed. :)

    true but in some cases, maybe not... i had a link in washington state that was way out in the boonies and had some really attrocious lines... they had huge troubles downloading large bundles... one problem was new mail being added to it after the transfer had failed so the next time they had to start all over again pulling a larger bundle... we switched them to raw PKTs which were much smaller and they could get them all over numerous connections without having to
    start all over again each time...

    I prefer receiving mail zipped to my point.

    i do raw PKTs everywhere... why waste the resources to zip them when the mailer
    and network protocols can compress them on the fly? ;)

    But no RAR needed. :)

    fully agreed :)

    Yes. There are always special cases.

    The compression is irrelevant nowadays when tranferring over the internet. But if a point (or node) polls mail only once or twice a day, it might be nice to transfer only one file instead of one hundred or so. At lest the log files look
    better. ;)

    Ok, it is possible to combine many .pkts to one. In that case arcmail sure is not needed. :)

    It's for unpacking file hatches that are .rar in format so the htick can get
    to the file_id.diz :)

    why at all pack today ?

    pkt files can be live compressed in binkp if zlib/bzip2 is supported, but it wont decompress/compress files sent, but all uncompressed with get delivered very fast if both ends support it over binkp

    RAR is btw not free software, but UNRAR is (stupid licenses)

    so to speak, dont pack with rar, but support unpacking is fine

    I notice you're one of the few using Msged/LNX-current. Could you do me a favor
    and try to set "Switch RightNextUnreadArea On" in your config file, and when you start msged, go to the last message in an area and press the right arrow, please?

    It's supposed to go to the next area with unread messages, but on my system it coredumps. Just wanted to see if it was a bug or related to my system specifically.

    I don't think anyone is working on msged these days anyways. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't just me that had the issue.

    One other person (Maurice) tested it also, and his actually worked as expected.
    So I'm not sure how or where the bug is just yet.
