MBSE BBS Setup - Mail Setup - Message Groups.


Message Groups are to logically divide your echomail areas in groups for different mail networks. It makes sense to select the groups by uplink, and areas file that is available for each network. When you have defined a Areas file and a message is received while you have no area for it, the area will be created with the defaults that are set in the message area group. This will only work if you receive a message from the uplink defined in this group, not from any downlinks. A note about the Start at area you can define, this may be higher then your number of areas currently is. As soon as a area is created in this group the areas database will be expanded so that it fits. Select these values carefully, make sure you have room for all possible areas in that group and skip a number of extra areas for future expansion.
