DESCRIPTION

       Welcome  to  CrashMail II! CrashMail II is basically a more portable version of CrashMail,
       my tosser for Amiga computers. Users of the old Amiga  version  will  probably  find  some
       things familiar while some features are gone such as the ARexx port (for obvious reasons!)
       and the GUI configuration editor. The only feature that  CrashMail  II  has  and  the  old
       CrashMail hasn't is support for JAM messagebases.

OPTIONS

       SCAN   Scan all areas for messages to export.

       TOSS   Toss all .pkt files and bundles in inbound directory.

       TOSSFILE filename
              Toss the specified file.

       TOSSDIR directory
              Toss all files in the specified directory.

       SCANAREA area
              Scan the specified area.

       SCANLIST filename
              Scan all areas listed in the specified file.

       RESCAN area
       RESCANNODE node
       RESCANMAX max
              Rescans  the  specied area for the specied node. If RESCANMAX is specified, it sets
              the maximum number of messages to rescan.

       SETTINGS filename
              Use this configuration file instead of the  default.You  can  use  the  environment
              variable CMCONFIGFILE to set the default configuration file.

       VERSION
              Show version information about CrashMail.

       LOCK   Locks CrashMail's configuration file and then exits. CrashMail has a simple locking
              mechanism  to  ensure  that  two  instances  of  CrashMail  never  use   the   same
              configuration  file  at  the same time. You can use this if you want to temporarily
              want to stop CrashMail from running, e.g. when updating the nodelist.

       UNLOCK Removes the lock  on  CrashMail's  configuration  file.  Only  use  this  when  the
              configuration  file previously has been locked with LOCK, otherwise terrible things
              might happen.

       NOSECURITY
              Process all packets without security checks. This is intended  to  be  used  mainly
              with TOSSDIR/TOSSFILE and with packets created by CrashWrite.

BUGS

   Win32
       If you want to use an old reader that only can handle 8+3 filenames, you have to use %8 in
       the path of your DEFAULT area if you are using the auto-add feature.  This  creates  an  8
       digit  serial number to use as the path for the area.  Note that if CrashMail is run twice
       in a short period of time (a few seconds), it might create duplicate paths.  Avoid  %8  if
       it is at all possible.

   Linux
       Don't  use  the  ~  character  in  paths.  Such  paths  are expanded to point to your home
       directory by the shell and not by the i/o functions in the system. They will not  work  in
       CrashMail.

       In  *.msg  areas, make sure that all files are named *.msg and not *.MSG!  If they are not
       named in lowercase, CrashMail will not export them.

       As an extra bonus, the Linux version of CrashMail can use the syslog instead of using  its
       own log file. Just use "syslog" as the name of your log file.

       If  the  precompiled binaries in the CrashMail archive don't work on your system, you will
       have to compile your own. See src/ReadMe.txt for more information about this.
