• USENET & Newslink.js

    From Mortifis@1:103/705 to All on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 10:50:05
    I set up a USENET group on my board, configured one area and successfully imported messages, timed event runs which imports/exports messages correctly, however, when listing messages in the sub I see, for example:

    Subject: Some Subject From: Some User To: comp.sys.raspberry-pi

    Is there a setting that shows the To: User Name instead of to the sub-area?

    Not if the original message did not have any "To" header fields.

    there's no such thing as a To: user in news articles... they're just like articles in your newspaper ;)

    successfully
    imported messages, timed event runs which imports/exports messages correctly, however, when listing messages in the sub I see, for
    example:

    Subject: Some Subject From: Some User To:

    Interesting, when I read the imported newsfeed from comp.sys.raspberry-pi
    in my message base the To: field says "comp.sys.raspberry-pi" and when I
    go to https://comp.sys.raspberry-pi.narkive.com/hxW43zqo/pcmanfm-how-to- set-the-preferred-order-of-open-with I see all of the To:'s and From's
    with people's names .... how does one acount for that?

    When I go to that https URL, I only see "from" names. It's possible that some articles will add X-Apparently-To or X-Comment-To header fields, in which case,
    newslink.js will import those header fields as a "To" field, but use of those header fields is not ubiquitous.
