    Log Message:
    Add option to strip so-called "Soft CRs" (0x8D) from incoming messages.
    The default is off (no stripping). Previously, Soft-CRs were always stripped, but this behavior is now seen as an anachronism as CP437 char 141 is an important non-English laguage character and used as such in FidoNet msgs.

    Add option to strip so-called "Soft CRs" (0x8D) from incoming messages.

    it took me a minute to find this new option... i was looking for it in the Global Settings section instead of the Echomail Settings section... does it also apply to netmail? if not, it kinda really should ;)

    thanks for adding it, too! :)



    PS: i'm sorry for your loss... i just found out earlier yesterday... i'm still dealing with mine from august and i know it can be painful for a while :/

    Add option to strip so-called "Soft CRs" (0x8D) from incoming messages.

    it took me a minute to find this new option... i was looking for it in the Global Settings section instead of the Echomail Settings section... does it also apply to netmail? if not, it kinda really should ;)

    As the online help says:

    Strip Soft CRs from Incoming Messages when set to Yes instructs
    SBBSecho to remove any so-called "Soft" Carriage Return (ASCII 141)
    characters from the text of imported EchoMail and NetMail messages.
    This setting defaults to No.

    ... it does also apply to NetMail. I'll probably move it to the global section since it really isn't EchoMail-specific.

    thanks for adding it, too! :)

    Sure. At first I was just going to remove the Soft-CR stripping, but thought I'd leave an option just in case someone really needs the old behavior.

    Thanks. It's been ordeal for sure.

    ummhummm... i read that and still wasn't sure so better to ask and find out than to assume and... well :lol:

    that would be cool...

    understandable...

    Log Message:
    Allow default packet type to be configurable

    Previously, any packets created for unlinked nodes, would always be Type-2 packets and the packet type for newly created nodes (in echocfg->Linked Nodes) would be Type-2+.

    The new DefaultPacketType setting default is 2+, so the only observed
    change in behavior will be that packets created for unlinked nodes will also
    be type 2+ (by default).

    Some additional log detail/adjustment around created/detected packet types.
