MBSE BBS Setup - Filefind Areas.
The filefind idea on Fidonet came from the program Allfix written by Harald Harms. The idea is that a user writes a mail in a filefind area addressed to "Allfix" with in the subject line the items to search for. On all BBS'es with a filefind utility those programs try to find the requested files and then produce a reply of which files they have found. That reply can be in the same area, in a special reply echo or can be sent by netmail. Usually the user gets a lot of replies from which he can see if someone has the file(s) available he was searching for.
