• Have a look at FN_SYSOP please ...

    Something weird happening.

    I write a netmail to Paul Hayton @ 3:770/100. It goes into a packet for 3:770/1 and when delivered it bounces back immediately with a destination change and time stamp change.

    My first idea was "HPT did it again".

    So as requested by Deon George I composed exactly the same kind of message and picked-up the resulting 'pkt' file which Deon examined after it was dropped at his system. He reported about it in FN_SYSOP and it could seem a D'Bridge-bug ....

    Extremely weird as I find no mention of 'zonegates' anywhere in the DB-manual and the 2:2/3-entry was dropped from the nodelist in ... 2009 after it had been dysfunctional for years, as were the other zonegate addresses.

    So the questions at the moment are:

    1) Where does this zonegate-address come from? It is not documented (I think)
    A Chris Irwin thing from days past?

    2) Why are my netmails to you not bouncing as they should involve the 2:2/1
    address then if Deon is right in his research.
    When sending netmail direct to Deon and Scott in Z3 it doesn't bounce
    either ... ??

    What am I overlooking?

    Netmail to Scott Little and Deon George seems not affected ....

    Take care,
