    I went back to the 37a exe's. Still cannot read packets. Can see msg areas, selct them and all goes to the dogs. I even see pathnames where
    msg subjects should be. I also ask anyone having trouble, can You
    upload a msg from offline if You posted it using offline. I can't. I
    think my issue is in the archiving. Will look into it some more. OTOH, archiving seems to be working. I cannot post even locally using
    offline. Must post while online.

    hummm. I can read them using multi-mail after i re-archive them with a
    peoper date. Did you say before that you where using bwave or slmr?
    seems like they should all be able to read them. if the srchive is good

    I guess another thing you could try is Syncterm, rather than MTelnet. I thought
    MTelnet's zmodem wasn't all that up to par these days? I remember getting a lot
    of CRC errors with that telnet client. Displays ANSI great though.

    So right now you're unarchiving the packet, changing the date, rearchiving it,






















































































































































































































































































































    then reading it with MultiMail?

    Regards,

    i've used both, with the same outcome. I get zero CRC errors uning Mtel/32
    and display perfect and doen't push my screen to the left, like syncherm
    does. i perfer using mTel/32 when i window and nodespy when in linux.

    So right now you're unarchiving the packet, changing the date,
    rearchiving it, then reading it with MultiMail?

    Step-by-step, unzip fluph.qwk dated 01/01/2098. (all data inside) archive has the real, (proper) date. Then zip it back up again, fluph.zip (good-date). Rename the file fluph.qwk and use it with multi-mail. I've had uses d/l qwk files plenty of times. I just never realized, that in order to use the *.qwk file, that they needed to jump through some many loops in order to use it.
    No glue how long this has been happening. Just noticed the year was 2098 for the qwk file and thought i should post results. The moral to the story, is mystic still rulez, and who needs qwk or qwke anyway :)

    Does it matter if you are using QWK or QWKE? Is one compatable with

    No, I just tested that and qwk or qwke makes no difference.

    Will your OLMR read both types, and if so, can it automatically
    determine which to use?

    I had always been using qwke in previous versions of mystic. All worked well. I had users test earlier alphas and all was fine. But now it seems not working. Not in a37 or a38.

    When I switched to qwk.. I checked it in BW and the reader said empty packet. Which it wasn't.

    Have a Good One!

    That is the difference between what You and I are getting. I am getting a
    good date, but bad packet. I am using BWAVE as the reader.
