[bbssig] Personal mail exchange between JNOS and FBB

Hi all!

I have been experimenting with exchanging packet mails between two 
computers in a home LAN. The first one is JNOS 2.0f (8088) on DOS and 
the other one is FBB on Windows:

             _____________                ____________________
VHF        |MS DOS 5 comp|              |MS Windows 2000 comp|
TRX--TNC2--|  JNOS2.0f   | --- LAN ---  | BPQ32, WinFBB7.00i |-- I'net
ant         -------------                --------------------
               YT7MPB-1              YT7MPB-3 (BPQ32), YT7MPB-4 (FBB)


Between YT7MPB-1 and YT7MPB-3 there is an AXIP tunnel and it works 
without problems, so both JNOS and FBB mailboxes are capable to initiate 
forwarding cycles. Until now, everything goes fine with exchanging 
bulletins (both directions) but somehow JNOS does not offer to forward 
any personal mail from its side.

For example, if I want to send a private mail to the sysop of YT7MPB-4 
(that is FBB machine), I do that from the bbs console of JNOS machine:

sp sysop at yt7mpb-4
To: yt7mpb
Subject:
test
Enter message.  End with /EX or ...
this is test
/ex
Send(N=no)? y
Msg queued
Area: ...

- or if I want to post it to all sysops -

sp sysop at ww
To: sysop
Subject:
test
Enter message.  End with /EX or ...
this is test
/ex
Send(N=no)? y
Msg queued
Area: ...

However, in the next forwarding cycle, initiated by JNOS, only the 
bulletins are offered to FBB (a view from 'All channels' window):

So, there are no "SP" personal mails from above to be offered. (Btw, as 
you can see, even those bulletins are not needed at FBB anymore because 
they actually had been forwarded by FBB to JNOS in some previous cycles 
or so, but it is not an issue at the moment).

In the next forwarding attempt, this time initiated by FBB:


[PORT 1 (BPQ) -  7 - SWITCH-0] 20:23 Connect
C YT7MPB-1
R3:YT7MPB-3} Connected to YT7MPB-1
[JNOS-2.0f-BFHIM$]
You have 8 messages  -  6 new.
Area: yt7mpb (#3) >

[PORT 1 (BPQ) -  7 - YT7MPB-1] 20:24 Disconnect


So, once again there are no personal mails to be offered by JNOS.

Here you have my JNOS files:

(AREAS):

eu	-	bulletins @EU
ww	-	bulletins @WW


(REWRITE):

*%*@yt7mpb* $1@$2 r
sysop yt7mpb		<-- mail for local JNOS sysop
sysop at yt7mpb* yt7mpb	<-- mail for FBB's sysop
sysop@* sysop		<-- mail for other sysops
*@eu eu			<-- bulls EU
*@ww ww			<-- bulls WW
* fwd			<-- everything else


(FORWARD.BBS):

----------------
yt7mpb-4 0023
ax25 fwd yt7mpb-4	('fwd' is the forwarding AXIP port)
yt7mpb	<--
sysop	<--
eu	<-- 5 areas to be forwarded
ww	<--
fwd	<--
----------------


Any suggestion? Errors in the files above? Something else?

Regards,

Misko YT7MPB
