Ah  -  that  old  chestnut.  This  one has been reported before but is
actually  covered in Options. See the "Quote name limit" option in the
Preferences..  View  /  editor..  Editor.  This  value states how many
characters  are  used  to  denote a quote prefix. Reduce this value to
reduce the effect. It is set to 20 on my system.

Most  of my templates are at Address Book Group level. This has always

of  a message open in a browse window for a different folder. Although
that  is  a rare malfunction, it was enough to have me lean toward the

This  content  type  was  not included. It may be due to the fact that
HTML messages are against the list rules, so not sanctioned as a type.

I  accept  that  this is 2020 and HTML email has become ubiquitous. In
order  to move forward, I won't remove the "rule" that HTML is frowned
upon,  but  I  won't  enforce  it  and  I  have  added the type to the

AS> It is 2020 out there and TB mailing lists seem to be a little outdated.

In the case of TBUDL, this seems to be happening regardless of size. I
have  looked  but  the  settings don't specify to do that. The hosting
server  has  shifted twice since we started to use the current rack. I
am not necessarily confident that the settings have ported correctly.

AS> famous "Current version is 8.0.18 | 'Using TBUDL' information" footer
AS> attached to all messages... Perhaps it is time for a maintenance?

This  footer  used to be maintained by admins every time a new release
came  from RITlabs, often with a slight lag. Max asked to control this
automatically  and  this was being done for a while. Then they stopped
updating  it.  I guess it's down to me again. (I am the sole admin and
mod these days, everyone else having resigned from the list). Max took
it over because I was updating it when the MSI was released to TBBETA,
not  in  new the loop otherwise as to when a particular version became
the current release.

AS> Things that come to mind, in no particular order:

AS> * Increase size limits for attachments.

TBBETA has a 75kb limit and TBUDL 25kb.

I suggest 150 for TBBETA and 100 for TBUDL. Thoughts?

AS> * Remove or, at very least, update "current version" footer.

I  will  take  back  control  (where  have  I  heard  that before?) of
maintenance for this number.

AS> * Consider merging TDUDL/TBBETA into one.

That's  a  very large "NO". There are 2 distinct audiences - those who
test  new  features  and  those who want help with the current release
version as end users.

AS> * Move mailing lists homepage to a separate domain.

I don't know what this means...

AS> * Modernise lists website, enable HTTPs.

I  enabled  HTTPS  back in January. If anybody else wants to take this

AS> * Ensure lists historical data is available and easily exportable.

... we have done this multiple times in the 20+ years that we have run

These  things are still true. I have checked the settings on the TBUDL

than the 25kb message size restriction. I still don't know why my 14kb

Having  seen  the other answers, I note that the actual working answer

a:  create new filter with 2 conditions "Sender in Group A" or "Sender

b: Now create 3 Subfilters of that top level filter

   1) If sender in Group A copy to Folder A and continue processing

   3) delete the message and stop.

This  will  give you the functionality you're looking for. I have many

I  mean  within  TB itself. Filters and templates - copy / paste. It's
arduous  and  time consuming, but one off - especially if you make use
of Common filters and Quick Templates.

Not something I use, so I can't help with that.

My  apologies for not noticing this sooner. Yes, we have migrated to a
new  physical  server within the same rack. The migration was supposed
to have been seamless, but there have been a couple of quirks.

I have now corrected the "preferred domain" setting so this should now
be corrected.

Actually - looking again, it's a mess!! I see messages in the list
that TB says are from me but, when I click on them, I see Maria or
Roelof are the actual senders in the From address on TBOT. I see a
transition in another list over the new year. A late December message
shows the "From" in an almost correct manner while a message from the
same individual in the same format with very similar headers is just
showing the list address as the "From".

I am adding a confirmation to the bug report.

Apologies for my incorrect analysis in the first place!

Dear Jack,

in mid:1683949350.20171118231...@charter.net said to MFPA:

It would.

It is.

M>> I have never noticed anybody getting "trouted" when they posted links
M>> to screenshots. So it has been accepted, which I guess means it is 
M>> acceptable.

JSL> Thanks M. I'll see what happens.

Here's the lore:

Attachments (inc screen-shots) are perfectly acceptable (although HTML
messages  are  frowned upon because they invariably double the size of
any simple message and our transmission facilities are provided FOC by
a generous host, on whose generosity I /know/ none of us would wish to
over-impose).

...HOWEVER...

There  are  limits  to the size of permitted attachments. 25k on TBUDL
and  75k  on TBBETA. If your screen-shot is small enough, attach it by
all  means.  You  can  even chance it. The worst that can happen is an
automated rejection from the Mailman server.


I hope that clarifies things.

Greetings TB Listers,

This is your monthly message from the moderation team to remind you of
the primary purpose of this discussion list.

To review the list rules, follow the link at the end of this message.

Before  posting  a  question to the list, please check The Bat! User's
FAQ   at:  http://www.silverstones.com/thebat/FAQ.html  and  the  list

   TBUDL Mission statement
~~
The  TBUDL list has been set up for the purpose of discussing The Bat!
and  how  to use it. It is a community of users ready and able to help
new  users get to grips with some of the capabilities of this flexible
email  client.  More  complex  issues are discussed on the TBTECH list
(see below for details).

Simply  send messages to mailto:TBUDL@thebat.dutaint.com to send it to
the whole list.

See  the  notes  at  the  end of this message for details about how to
manage your list membership or to leave the list.

~~
It  would  probably  be a good idea for you to set up a folder to keep
TBUDL  messages in. If you do this, the next most useful thing to have
in place is an automatic filter to move mail from your inbox into your
TBUDL folder.

Set up a filter for incoming mail which looks for:

Header Field [Reply-To] Contains [TBUDL@thebat]

~~
  The Roguemoticon Project
~~

It's nice to see your contact's face in the header ... and for them to
see yours. That's what roguemoticons are all about. If you wish to add
yourself, then you'll need to visit this site:
 http://www.pcwize.com/thebat
What  this place will do for you is to allow you to create an account,
add  your  image  and then let you download a .ZIP file containing all
the  files you'll need to be able so see people's faces without having
to send or receive any real images in any messages.

To  trigger  the roguemoticon display in the message header for anyone
reading  your  message  using  TB,  you  have  the choice of using the
X-Rogue: header or a signature trigger.

  How to use a signature trigger
The  image  is  triggered  by  a 'Handle' you've defined in your
account,  and  when  that  Handle  appears  in a message it gets
replaced on the client side by the corresponding image. A handle
could  look  like anything you want it to look like pretty much.
For example:
:Marck_Pearlstone:
Just add this text to your standard message signature block.

  How to create the X-Rogue: header
You can do that with this macro:
%SetHeader('X-Rogue',':your_handle:')%-  in  your  templates for
this and other tb-lists.
However, the macro alone won't do the trick.
TB'll  say: 'Hey, that's not any RFC822 header I know about', so
you'll have to define it as such:
Options  ..  Preferences .. Messages .. Message headers .. 'Add'

Now you'll get a pop-up to define the header

  Display as: X-Rogue (or whatever, it isn't very important)
  RFC header: X-Rogue
  Uncheck: 'This field is an address list' (because it isn't)
  Check: 'Allow this field to be edited in the message editor'
  Uncheck:  'Display  this  field  in the scrollable part of the
  header pane'

Now you're done and every TB-user can see your lovable face when
they've installed the roguemoticons.

For you to see peoples faces:

  To get this going, you should be running TB! v2.12 or later. Fetch
  the following file:
  http://www.pcwize.com/thebat/smileys/Rogues.zip

  Unzip it to the 'Images' directory that's in your TB! installation
  directory: C:\Program Files\The Bat!\Images
  You  should  now  have a directory called 'rogues' containing many
  images  as well as the file 'rogues.msl' in your Images directory.
  Go into the preferences, and bring up the View/Editor options. Now
  hit  Shift-CTRL-Alt-T  while  TB!  is in focus. This will re-fetch
  TB!'s smiley set from disk and load the new images.

  Within TB itself, select Options --> Preferences and click on
  'Viewer/Editor and enable 'Use smiley icons in HTML editor'.

I  have  now seen the offending message (found it in my own local spam

I   didn't   actually   see  the  offending  email.  I  think  my  own
(Silverstones) email server must have weeded it out before delivery.

There are no spam filters on the list server that I am aware of and if
an email arrives for distribution with a valid from address that is in
the membership list, there is no protection. I am not surprised it got
through.  It  won't  be  the fault of the owner of the from address as
these  things  are  nearly always faked from sold spammer lists by the
sender.

Not  at  all  in this instance. During March, Johannes contacted me to
let  me  know  that  the  current hosting server would be changing for
various  technical reasons. Clearly, the new mailman server is sending
out  reminders  in  tandem  with  the original. I will mention this to
Johannes  and see why two reminders were sent. It seems to me that the
old  server, while no longer responsible for sending out the list mail
itself,  is  still  running  and  thus  sent the old list subscription
reminders.

Greetings TB Listers,

This is your monthly message from the moderation team to remind you
of the primary purpose of this discussion list.

To review the list rules, follow the link at the end of this message.

Before  posting a question to the list, please check The Bat! User's
FAQ  at:  http://www.silverstones.com/thebat/FAQ.html  and  the list
archive  at http://www.mail-archive.com/tbudl@thebat.dutaint.com. To

 TBUDL Mission statement

The  TBUDL  list  has  been set up for the purpose of discussing The
Bat! and how to use it. It is a community of users ready and able to
help  new  users  get to grips with some of the capabilities of this
flexible  email  client.  More  complex  issues are discussed on the
TBTECH list (see below for details).

Simply  send  messages to mailto:TBUDL@thebat.dutaint.com to send it

It  would probably be a good idea for you to set up a folder to keep
TBUDL  messages  in.  If  you do this, the next most useful thing to
have  in  place  is an automatic filter to move mail from your inbox
into your TBUDL folder.

Set up a filter for incoming mail which looks for:

Header Field [Reply-To] Contains [TBUDL@thebat]


The Roguemoticon Project


It's  nice to see your contact's face in the header ... and for them
to  see  yours. That's what roguemoticons are all about. If you wish
to add yourself, then you'll need to visit this site
http://www.pcwize.com/thebat
What  this  place  will  do  for  you  is  to allow you to create an
account,  add  your  image  and  then  let  you download a .ZIP file
containing  all  the  files  you'll  need to be able so see people's
faces  without  having  to  send  or  receive any real images in any
messages.

To trigger the roguemoticon display in the message header for anyone
reading  your  message  using  TB,  you have the choice of using the
X-Rogue: header or a signature trigger.

  How to use a signature trigger
The  image  is  triggered  by  a 'Handle' you've defined in your
account,  and  when  that  Handle  appears  in a message it gets
replaced on the client side by the corresponding image. A handle
could  look  like anything you want it to look like pretty much.
For example:
:Marck_Pearlstone:
Just add this text to your standard message signature block.

  How to create the X-Rogue: header
You can do that with this macro:
%SetHeader('X-Rogue',':your_handle:')%-  in  your  templates for
this and other tb-lists.
However, the macro alone won't do the trick.
TB'll  say: 'Hey, that's not any RFC822 header I know about', so
you'll have to define it as such:
Options  ..  Preferences .. Messages .. Message headers .. 'Add'

Now you'll get a pop-up to define the header

  Display as: X-Rogue (or whatever, it isn't very important)
  RFC header: X-Rogue
  Uncheck: 'This field is an address list' (because it isn't)
  Check: 'Allow this field to be edited in the message editor'
  Uncheck:  'Display  this  field  in the scrollable part of the
  header pane'

Now you're done and every TB-user can see your lovable face when
they've installed the roguemoticons.

For you to see peoples faces:

  To get this going, you should be running TB! v2.12 or later. Fetch
  the following file:
  http://www.pcwize.com/thebat/smileys/Rogues.zip

  Unzip it to the 'Images' directory that's in your TB! installation
  directory: C:\Program Files\The Bat!\Images
  You  should  now  have a directory called 'rogues' containing many
  images  as well as the file 'rogues.msl' in your Images directory.
  Go into the preferences, and bring up the View/Editor options. Now
  hit  Shift-CTRL-Alt-T  while  TB!  is in focus. This will re-fetch
  TB!'s smiley set from disk and load the new images.

  Within TB itself, select Options --> Preferences and click on
  'Viewer/Editor and enable 'Use smiley icons in HTML editor'.

 TBUDL Mission statement

The  TBUDL  list  has  been set up for the purpose of discussing The
Bat! and how to use it. It is a community of users ready and able to
help  new  users  get to grips with some of the capabilities of this
flexible  email  client.  More  complex  issues are discussed on the
TBTECH list (see below for details).

Simply  send  messages to mailto:TBUDL@thebat.dutaint.com to send it
to the whole list.

See  the  notes  at the end of this message for details about how to
manage your list membership or to leave the list.


It  would probably be a good idea for you to set up a folder to keep
TBUDL  messages  in.  If  you do this, the next most useful thing to
have  in  place  is an automatic filter to move mail from your inbox
into your TBUDL folder.

Set up a filter for incoming mail which looks for:

Header Field [Reply-To] Contains [TBUDL@thebat]


The Roguemoticon Project


It's  nice to see your contact's face in the header ... and for them
to  see  yours. That's what roguemoticons are all about. If you wish
to add yourself, then you'll need to visit this site
http://www.pcwize.com/thebat
What  this  place  will  do  for  you  is  to allow you to create an
account,  add  your  image  and  then  let  you download a .ZIP file
containing  all  the  files  you'll  need to be able so see people's
faces  without  having  to  send  or  receive any real images in any
messages.

To trigger the roguemoticon display in the message header for anyone
reading  your  message  using  TB,  you have the choice of using the
X-Rogue: header or a signature trigger.

  How to use a signature trigger
The  image  is  triggered  by  a 'Handle' you've defined in your
account,  and  when  that  Handle  appears  in a message it gets
replaced on the client side by the corresponding image. A handle
could  look  like anything you want it to look like pretty much.
For example:
:Marck_Pearlstone:
Just add this text to your standard message signature block.

  How to create the X-Rogue: header
You can do that with this macro:
%SetHeader('X-Rogue',':your_handle:')%-  in  your  templates for
this and other tb-lists.
However, the macro alone won't do the trick.
TB'll  say: 'Hey, that's not any RFC822 header I know about', so
you'll have to define it as such:
Options  ..  Preferences .. Messages .. Message headers .. 'Add'

Now you'll get a pop-up to define the header

  Display as: X-Rogue (or whatever, it isn't very important)
  RFC header: X-Rogue
  Uncheck: 'This field is an address list' (because it isn't)
  Check: 'Allow this field to be edited in the message editor'
  Uncheck:  'Display  this  field  in the scrollable part of the
  header pane'

Now you're done and every TB-user can see your lovable face when
they've installed the roguemoticons.

For you to see peoples faces:

  To get this going, you should be running TB! v2.12 or later. Fetch
  the following file:
  http://www.pcwize.com/thebat/smileys/Rogues.zip

  Unzip it to the 'Images' directory that's in your TB! installation
  directory: C:\Program Files\The Bat!\Images
  You  should  now  have a directory called 'rogues' containing many
  images  as well as the file 'rogues.msl' in your Images directory.
  Go into the preferences, and bring up the View/Editor options. Now
  hit  Shift-CTRL-Alt-T  while  TB!  is in focus. This will re-fetch
  TB!'s smiley set from disk and load the new images.

  Within TB itself, select Options --> Preferences and click on
  'Viewer/Editor and enable 'Use smiley icons in HTML editor'.

Essentially, yes.

I wouldn't know whether or not they look "correct" since I haven't
compared. All I can say for certain is that this specific bug was
called out as a bug, addressed a month or so back in the beta version
and has been fixed. This fix has improved my personal reading of HTML
mails with embedded pictures to a point of near perfection rather than
sprawling the message to the width of the largest picture and not
scaling.

I'm not certain of the release state of the fixed version.

It  is crystal clear that something fundamental was changed at the 1&1

have 2 named SMTP servers:

auth.smtp.1and1.co.uk
smtp.1and1.co.uk

Which are you using?

That's nothing to do with "Authentication". That's to do with
transport encryption, which is not the problem and is working fine
according to the logs you have sent here.

Next to the SMTP server name edit box is a button labelled
"Authentication" (or your local language variation on that word).
That's where your problem lies - in the options within.

My first guess would be that the hotel wifi blocks port 25 to prevent
guests spambot infested systems spewing junk from their connection.
Your mainstream accounts will likely be using SMTP over the secure 465
port, which is usually open for use on public networks. It is highly
possible that your personal domain email accounts are not configured
to use TLS, SLL or StartTLS so get blocked from using port 25.

Greetings TB Listers,

This is your monthly message from the moderation team to remind you
of the primary purpose of this discussion list.

To review the list rules, follow the link at the end of this message.

Before  posting a question to the list, please check The Bat! User's
FAQ  at:  http://www.silverstones.com/thebat/FAQ.html  and  the list
archive  at http://www.mail-archive.com/tbudl@thebat.dutaint.com. To

 TBUDL Mission statement

The  TBUDL  list  has  been set up for the purpose of discussing The
Bat! and how to use it. It is a community of users ready and able to
help  new  users  get to grips with some of the capabilities of this
flexible  email  client.  More  complex  issues are discussed on the
TBTECH list (see below for details).

Simply  send  messages to mailto:TBUDL@thebat.dutaint.com to send it
to the whole list.

See  the  notes  at the end of this message for details about how to
manage your list membership or to leave the list.


It  would probably be a good idea for you to set up a folder to keep
TBUDL  messages  in.  If  you do this, the next most useful thing to
have  in  place  is an automatic filter to move mail from your inbox
into your TBUDL folder.

Set up a filter for incoming mail which looks for:

Header Field [Reply-To] Contains [TBUDL@thebat]


The Roguemoticon Project


It's  nice to see your contact's face in the header ... and for them
to  see  yours. That's what roguemoticons are all about. If you wish
to add yourself, then you'll need to visit this site
http://www.pcwize.com/thebat
What  this  place  will  do  for  you  is  to allow you to create an
account,  add  your  image  and  then  let  you download a .ZIP file
containing  all  the  files  you'll  need to be able so see people's
faces  without  having  to  send  or  receive any real images in any
messages.

To trigger the roguemoticon display in the message header for anyone
reading  your  message  using  TB,  you have the choice of using the
X-Rogue: header or a signature trigger.

  How to use a signature trigger
The  image  is  triggered  by  a 'Handle' you've defined in your
account,  and  when  that  Handle  appears  in a message it gets
replaced on the client side by the corresponding image. A handle
could  look  like anything you want it to look like pretty much.
For example:
:Marck_Pearlstone:
Just add this text to your standard message signature block.

  How to create the X-Rogue: header
You can do that with this macro:
%SetHeader('X-Rogue',':your_handle:')%-  in  your  templates for
this and other tb-lists.
However, the macro alone won't do the trick.
TB'll  say: 'Hey, that's not any RFC822 header I know about', so
you'll have to define it as such:
Options  ..  Preferences .. Messages .. Message headers .. 'Add'

Now you'll get a pop-up to define the header

  Display as: X-Rogue (or whatever, it isn't very important)
  RFC header: X-Rogue
  Uncheck: 'This field is an address list' (because it isn't)
  Check: 'Allow this field to be edited in the message editor'
  Uncheck:  'Display  this  field  in the scrollable part of the
  header pane'

Now you're done and every TB-user can see your lovable face when
they've installed the roguemoticons.

For you to see peoples faces:

  To get this going, you should be running TB! v2.12 or later. Fetch
  the following file:
  http://www.pcwize.com/thebat/smileys/rogues.zip

  Unzip it to the 'Images' directory that's in your TB! installation
  directory: C:\Program Files\The Bat!\Images
  You  should  now  have a directory called 'rogues' containing many
  images  as well as the file 'rogues.msl' in your Images directory.
  Go into the preferences, and bring up the View/Editor options. Now
  hit  Shift-CTRL-Alt-T  while  TB!  is in focus. This will re-fetch
  TB!'s smiley set from disk and load the new images.

  Within TB itself, select Options --> Preferences and click on
  'Viewer/Editor and enable 'Use smiley icons in HTML editor'.

RD Is there a way to Template-Forward an email and strip the original

Not with forward, but if you use Reply then invoke a spamfwd quick
template that reformats the message using %text macros etc. then you
can get the functionality you are looking for.

It's actually only one extra step over having a safe forward
function and I think that's not too much overhead for the frequency of
use.

A QT can be configured to fire on a hotkey. So it becomes Reply, hit

A correctly configured SMTP server should not be asked to handle

Single outbox was one of the reasons I dumped Eudora and not something

AG Similarly  in Eudora, there is only one Inbox which you create filters

AG I  cannot  find  that same functionality in The Bat.

They are known as Common Filters. Instead of having one Inbox for
all accounts (horribly inflexible), in The Bat you can filter all
inbound messages for general distribution.

... snip
AG sent. But if I do change the account, I have to make a mental note
AG of which one it was and then move from that outbox afterwards to
AG the outbox for the account I actually want to send from.

In the middle of the editor window status bar is an indicator of which
account you are currently using. Left click to change account. Simple.

Vive la difference! If every piece of software had exactly the same
features with identical interfaces, what point would the be of having
different software?

I was also a one time Eudora user. There is nothing Eudora did that TB
doesn't do better. There is also a large list of things TB does that
Eudora doesn't. It just takes getting used to the differences and
getting to grips with the new paradigm.

... snip
TB I am using the quick reply screen at the bottom of this mail, if I
TB understand correctly this is a no no

Correct. That usually creates an ever growing reply chain full of
redundant information.

Because TB is a threading email client, it is easy to find references.
Despite the worldwide acceptance of top posting a quick response, it
is only really valid in an a context where a small number of committed
recipients are completely au-fait with the topic being discussed.

In a mass mailing list such as this, anybody interested in joining in
with the thread topic only reads a disjointed, out-of-context sound
bite at the top of a fully quoted message, giving the reader the added
duty of scrolling down to read previous statements and try to
determine context from there.

Imagine reading a joke like that:

,--/ Top posted joke \--
Terrible

 How does it smell?

 My dog has no nose
`--\ End /--

When reply to the TB list, the expectation is that you hit the Reply
button and trim out all extraneous text to reduce the quotes and any
response message to a highly legible synopsis and easy-to-read entry
point for anybody else wishing to help.

Top posting is a turn off when it comes to others chiming in.

TB'll  say: 'Hey, that's not any RFC822 header I know about', so
you'll have to define it as such:
Options  ..  Preferences .. Messages .. Message headers .. 'Add'

Now you'll get a pop-up to define the header

  Display as: X-Rogue (or whatever, it isn't very important)
  RFC header: X-Rogue
  Uncheck: 'This field is an address list' (because it isn't)
  Check: 'Allow this field to be edited in the message editor'
  Uncheck:  'Display  this  field  in the scrollable part of the
  header pane'

Now you're done and every TB-user can see your lovable face when
they've installed the roguemoticons.

For you to see peoples faces:

  To get this going, you should be running TB! v2.12 or later. Fetch
  the following file:
  http://www.pcwize.com/thebat/smileys/rogues.zip

  Unzip it to the 'Images' directory that's in your TB! installation
  directory: C:\Program Files\The Bat!\Images
  You  should  now  have a directory called 'rogues' containing many
  images  as well as the file 'rogues.msl' in your Images directory.
  Go into the preferences, and bring up the View/Editor options. Now
  hit  Shift-CTRL-Alt-T  while  TB!  is in focus. This will re-fetch
  TB!'s smiley set from disk and load the new images.

  Within TB itself, select Options -- Preferences and click on
  'Viewer/Editor and enable 'Use smiley icons in HTML editor'.

Right. To clarify - '\n' as a literal within a single cookie line will
line-break the cookie when used from the macro. That was what I
thought you meant. And I was suggesting that replacing '\n' with br
should add a line break within the cookie line in an HTML template.

It was a guess, so I could be wrong.

My first and most likely suspect in this instance would be the IMAP
server software. When in IMAP mode, The Bat! can only show you what
the server tells it is available. I know that attachments I receive
come through exactly as I would expect them.

You should inspect the message source and check the headers in the
attachment section of the message, which should include some of e.g.

 Content-Type: application/octet-stream; name=part.att
 Content-Description: part.att
 Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=part.att; size=;

This would demonstrate that the server configuration is at fault by
forcing an inappropriate attachment name.

A I am still confused.  This may be elementary, but I need some step by
A step hand-holding.

A If I create a mail message that I want to go to all 100 contacts in a
A group, what do I do to easily accomplish that?

You create your entire message as a Mass Mailing Template. These are
Quick templates, created in the Quick Template editor that have the
Mass Mailing Template checkbox ticked. The template will include the
macros for attribution and manipulation of the To field as well as the
entire body of the message you wish to send. You can get very clever
by using other fields of the address book to conditionally add or
remove whole paragraphs, but that means getting fairly sophisticated.

A The only way I know to get a mail message to automatically go to
A everyone in the group is to open up the address book, highlight the
A group and then click on new message. The group handle will appear
A in the to field followed by list

There is another way. In the Address book, highlight the group then,
from the Address book menu choose File - New - Mass Mailing using
Template. This will give you all the options you need to generate
individual emails to every member of the chosen group (or the
currently selected subset of specific entries) using the template you
wrote your mass mailing message template in.

A I tried to place   %ABtoHANDLE %TOADDR  in the to field, but that
A yielded an error message:

Yes - these are *template* macros. The clue here is the word
template, meaning they can only be correctly interpreted when used
in a template. I don't mean to patronize - just trying to help.

... snip

A What am I doing wrong?

Just work through the pointers above and you should be able to get
somewhere with it now.

Greetings TB Listers,

This is your monthly message from the moderation team to remind you
of the primary purpose of this discussion list.

To review the list rules, follow the link at the end of this message.

Before  posting a question to the list, please check The Bat! User's
FAQ  at:  http://www.silverstones.com/thebat/FAQ.html  and  the list
archive  at http://www.mail-archive.com/tbudl@thebat.dutaint.com. To

 TBUDL Mission statement

The  TBUDL  list  has  been set up for the purpose of discussing The
Bat! and how to use it. It is a community of users ready and able to
help  new  users  get to grips with some of the capabilities of this
flexible  email  client.  More  complex  issues are discussed on the
TBTECH list (see below for details).

Simply  send  messages to mailto:TBUDL@thebat.dutaint.com to send it
to the whole list.

See  the  notes  at the end of this message for details about how to
manage your list membership or to leave the list.


It  would probably be a good idea for you to set up a folder to keep
TBUDL  messages  in.  If  you do this, the next most useful thing to
have  in  place  is an automatic filter to move mail from your inbox
into your TBUDL folder.

Set up a filter for incoming mail which looks for:

Header Field [Reply-To] Contains [TBUDL@thebat]


The Roguemoticon Project


It's  nice to see your contact's face in the header ... and for them
to  see  yours. That's what roguemoticons are all about. If you wish
to add yourself, then you'll need to visit this site
http://www.pcwize.com/thebat
What  this  place  will  do  for  you  is  to allow you to create an
account,  add  your  image  and  then  let  you download a .ZIP file
containing  all  the  files  you'll  need to be able so see people's
faces  without  having  to  send  or  receive any real images in any
messages.

To trigger the roguemoticon display in the message header for anyone
reading  your  message  using  TB,  you have the choice of using the
X-Rogue: header or a signature trigger.

  How to use a signature trigger
The  image  is  triggered  by  a 'Handle' you've defined in your
account,  and  when  that  Handle  appears  in a message it gets
replaced on the client side by the corresponding image. A handle
could  look  like anything you want it to look like pretty much.
For example:
:Marck_Pearlstone:
Just add this text to your standard message signature block.

  How to create the X-Rogue: header
You can do that with this macro:
%SetHeader('X-Rogue',':your_handle:')%-  in  your  templates for
this and other tb-lists.
However, the macro alone won't do the trick.
TB'll  say: 'Hey, that's not any RFC822 header I know about', so
you'll have to define it as such:
Options  ..  Preferences .. Messages .. Message headers .. 'Add'

Now you'll get a pop-up to define the header

  Display as: X-Rogue (or whatever, it isn't very important)
  RFC header: X-Rogue
  Uncheck: 'This field is an address list' (because it isn't)
  Check: 'Allow this field to be edited in the message editor'
  Uncheck:  'Display  this  field  in the scrollable part of the
  header pane'

Now you're done and every TB-user can see your lovable face when
they've installed the roguemoticons.

  Go into the preferences, and bring up the View/Editor options. Now
  hit  Shift-CTRL-Alt-T  while  TB!  is in focus. This will re-fetch
  TB!'s smiley set from disk and load the new images.

Well, it does. People have to join and answer a confirmation email.
It's a whole turnaround procedure. An email address has to be
subscribed to the list to be able to post. It's good enough. Nobody
is paid to moderate the list and having to moderate every message
from new subscribers is not a practical solution.

Given that in the 13 years we've been running the list, this is the

The Roguemoticon Project


It's  nice to see your contact's face in the header ... and for them
to  see  yours. That's what roguemoticons are all about. If you wish
to add yourself, then you'll need to visit this site
http://www.pcwize.com/thebat
What  this  place  will  do  for  you  is  to allow you to create an
account,  add  your  image  and  then  let  you download a .ZIP file
containing  all  the  files  you'll  need to be able so see people's
faces  without  having  to  send  or  receive any real images in any
messages.

To trigger the roguemoticon display in the message header for anyone
reading  your  message  using  TB,  you have the choice of using the
X-Rogue: header or a signature trigger.

  How to use a signature trigger
The  image  is  triggered  by  a 'Handle' you've defined in your
account,  and  when  that  Handle  appears  in a message it gets
replaced on the client side by the corresponding image. A handle
could  look  like anything you want it to look like pretty much.
For example:
:Marck_Pearlstone:
Just add this text to your standard message signature block.

  How to create the X-Rogue: header
You can do that with this macro:
%SetHeader('X-Rogue',':your_handle:')%-  in  your  templates for
this and other tb-lists.
However, the macro alone won't do the trick.
TB'll  say: 'Hey, that's not any RFC822 header I know about', so
you'll have to define it as such:
Options  ..  Preferences .. Messages .. Message headers .. 'Add'

Now you'll get a pop-up to define the header

  Display as: X-Rogue (or whatever, it isn't very important)
  RFC header: X-Rogue
  Uncheck: 'This field is an address list' (because it isn't)
  Check: 'Allow this field to be edited in the message editor'
  Uncheck:  'Display  this  field  in the scrollable part of the
  header pane'

Now you're done and every TB-user can see your lovable face when
they've installed the roguemoticons.

For you to see peoples faces:

  To get this going, you should be running TB! v2.12 or later. Fetch
  the following file:
  http://www.pcwize.com/thebat/smileys/rogues.zip

  Unzip it to the 'Images' directory that's in your TB! installation
  directory: C:\Program Files\The Bat!\Images
  You  should  now  have a directory called 'rogues' containing many
  images  as well as the file 'rogues.msl' in your Images directory.
  Go into the preferences, and bring up the View/Editor options. Now
  hit  Shift-CTRL-Alt-T  while  TB!  is in focus. This will re-fetch
  TB!'s smiley set from disk and load the new images.

  Within TB itself, select Options -- Preferences and click on
  'Viewer/Editor and enable 'Use smiley icons in HTML editor'.

It's  nice to see your contact's face in the header ... and for them
to  see  yours. That's what roguemoticons are all about. If you wish
to add yourself, then you'll need to visit this site
http://www.pcwize.com/thebat
What  this  place  will  do  for  you  is  to allow you to create an
account,  add  your  image  and  then  let  you download a .ZIP file
containing  all  the  files  you'll  need to be able so see people's
faces  without  having  to  send  or  receive any real images in any
messages.

To trigger the roguemoticon display in the message header for anyone
reading  your  message  using  TB,  you have the choice of using the
X-Rogue: header or a signature trigger.

  How to use a signature trigger
The  image  is  triggered  by  a 'Handle' you've defined in your
account,  and  when  that  Handle  appears  in a message it gets
replaced on the client side by the corresponding image. A handle
could  look  like anything you want it to look like pretty much.
For example:
:Marck_Pearlstone:
Just add this text to your standard message signature block.

  How to create the X-Rogue: header
You can do that with this macro:
%SetHeader('X-Rogue',':your_handle:')%-  in  your  templates for
this and other tb-lists.
However, the macro alone won't do the trick.
TB'll  say: 'Hey, that's not any RFC822 header I know about', so
you'll have to define it as such:
Options  ..  Preferences .. Messages .. Message headers .. 'Add'

Now you'll get a pop-up to define the header

  Display as: X-Rogue (or whatever, it isn't very important)
  RFC header: X-Rogue
  Uncheck: 'This field is an address list' (because it isn't)
  Check: 'Allow this field to be edited in the message editor'
  Uncheck:  'Display  this  field  in the scrollable part of the
  header pane'

Now you're done and every TB-user can see your lovable face when
they've installed the roguemoticons.

For you to see peoples faces:

  To get this going, you should be running TB! v2.12 or later. Fetch
  the following file:
  http://www.pcwize.com/thebat/smileys/rogues.zip

  Unzip it to the 'Images' directory that's in your TB! installation
  directory: C:\Program Files\The Bat!\Images
  You  should  now  have a directory called 'rogues' containing many
  images  as well as the file 'rogues.msl' in your Images directory.
  Go into the preferences, and bring up the View/Editor options. Now
  hit  Shift-CTRL-Alt-T  while  TB!  is in focus. This will re-fetch
  TB!'s smiley set from disk and load the new images.

  Within TB itself, select Options -- Preferences and click on
  'Viewer/Editor and enable 'Use smiley icons in HTML editor'.

AM OK, now I'm really frustrated -- the problem is with TheBat creating
AM unnecessary duplicates of attachments.
... snip
AM Obviously this a a bug and not a feature.

Not so. This is entirely predicted, predictable and required behaviour.

AM So what is causing this

If you have multiple messages that refer to the same attachment,
each message MUST have its own copy of that attachment so that, when
message A and attachments are deleted, message B still has its
attached files available and intact.

AM and what can I do to address this?

Keep attachments in the message bodies. It doesn't change anything
except that connected attachments are more obviously attributed to
the message that owns them rather than giving a poor illusion of
cascading duplication in an externalised attachment folder.

 to all who tried to help. It's a lost casue. The platform provider says its
 TB. I will just contune gettin gthe links form webmail.

DE Sorry IMHO they are wrong.

DE The URL is incorrect as it does not conform to RFC 1738. The two characters
DE that are not encoded but should be are [/] and [@]. They are reserved
DE characters and are being used out of there 'reserved character' context.

Further to that, TB is one of the few email clients that can be 100%
trusted (in plain text view) not to change anything in the message
body. If there is tampering with the URL, it is being down by a
routing MTA (transit mail server) or by an anti-virus message
scourer. TB has faults, but this is not one of them.

D I am going to the template I wish to copy and make the Handle
D and Name the same without spaces

 The name is irrelevant to anyone and anything but you and your
 visual comfort. How you would like to see the template listed in
 the QT list. You can have spaces in the name with no problem.

 The Handle is the technical bit that is referenced in the
 %QUINCLUDE macro.

I was trying to point out here that a handle is best without
spaces.

D At the top of this template I place %qinclude MyTemplate

As others have said you can put %qinclude=MyTemplate or
%qinclude(MyTemplate) but NOT %qinclude MyTemplate.

 You have to put the %qinclude call at the top of the Reply
 template or address book entry template or account new message
 template or (shudder) the folder template.

This is the important bit!!

 Well, I'm lost now. I don't know where the template you started
 with came from or where the final macro call ended up.

... snip

D Now if I select the whole template only the text in the cells is selected.

Okay, so it's an HTML formatted template. That would be more
complicated to copy into a quick template. Where is it? What is it a
template for??? New Message? Reply? Account or Address book? Please
answer these questions inline so we have a context and point of
reference for any replies you make.

D Now select a new QT and the text is put in unformatted left aligned.

So - perhaps you can't just copy and paste an HTML template. I don't
know. I don't use HTML in email.

D Now where does the %qinclude My Template go?

That's %qinclude=My Template - and you should take out the space.

One of 2 places in a proper template (Account, Address book or
Folder ... New Message, Reply or Forward) or while you're editing a
new message, reply or forward, when you can type a QT handle and
press Ctrl+Space to invoke the template in real time, which you
can't do if the handle has a space in it!

D If I put it in the original

Where is the original, David? You still didn't tell us.

... snip
D But similarly if I put it in the template I am creating it just
D shows Cannot find a quick template  My Template , but the
D text is not formatted nor is the table created.

Bill explained this one quite well.

D whilst keeping the original. I have searched through but cannot
D find anyway of doing it.

Here's the optimal way to use multiple template configurations in
TB. Quick Templates.

Use highlight the template content that you want to keep and press
Ctrl-C to copy it to the clipboard.

Open the Quick Templates interface. Create a new Quick Template and
paste your copied template into the body. Create another new Quick
Template for as many variations as you want to have.

Now go back to the original template. If your Quick Template was
(for example) labelled with a tag of MyQT1 then replace the
entire template with a single line that reads:

%qinclude MyQT1

In this way, you can set up as many templates or bits of templates
as you wish and pull them into a real template with the %qinclude
macro.

D Thanks for that but I am losing you somewhere because I cannot
D get it to work.

Okay - let's see if we can interact and get this going for you.

D I am going to the template I wish to copy and make the Handle and
D Name the same without spaces (tried making them slightly
D different to no avail).

The name is irrelevant to anyone and anything but you and your
visual comfort. How you would like to see the template listed in the
QT list. You can have spaces in the name with no problem.

The Handle is the technical bit that is referenced in the %QUINCLUDE
macro. There's certainly no need to make the name and handle the
same or even similar.

D Doing ctrl A (I assume that is what you mean by highlight). Then
D ctrl C to copy.

Yes - that is good. Or marking with the mouse. But Ctrl+A works. And
you're doing this for which template? This should be the account
template you want to copy, yes?

D Start a new quick template and pasting the content (ctrl V).

You pasted this into the main body area of the template, right? The
larger box just under the menu and above the Name and Handle text
boxes etc.

D At the top of this template I place %qinclude MyTemplate

Wait. The top of which template? Not the quick template. That would
make a self-referential loop. You have to put the %qinclude call at
the top of the Reply template or address book entry template or
account new message template or (shudder) the folder template.

D Go to Preview and I get the text unformatted and at the top I get

D Cannot find a quick template  MyTemplate

Well, I'm lost now. I don't know where the template you started with
came from or where the final macro call ended up.

D where am I going wrong please.

Not entirely sure, I confess. Let me try by showing you what I use.
My Account default new message template looks like this:
___
%qinclude(BizNew)%-
¯¯¯
The BizNew Common QT (named Biz New message) looks like this:
___
Dear %qinclude(ABTO),
%qinclude(PrvPG)%-
%qinclude(PrvPM)%-
%Cursor
--   I've edited this so it doesn't introduce a cut mark here
%qinclude(%ABTOPhone(Soft))
%qinclude(XSig)
¯¯¯

D -- -

Hmm - not quite with the cut mark! But nearly. See mine below? It's
just:
dashdashspacereturn
but, of course, it's in a template. ;)

TBUDL Mission Statement

2011-03-01 Thread Marck Pearlstone
-BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-
Hash: SHA1

Greetings TB Listers,

This is your monthly message from the moderation team to remind you
of the primary purpose of this discussion list.

To review the list rules, follow the link at the end of this message.

Before  posting a question to the list, please check The Bat! User's
FAQ  at:  http://www.silverstones.com/thebat/FAQ.html  and  the list
archive  at http://www.mail-archive.com/tbudl@thebat.dutaint.com. To
subscribe,  send  a message to mailto:tbudl-j...@thebat.dutaint.com.
There  is also a beginners 'MAQ' (Most Asked Questions) available by
clicking  here:  mailto:mdae...@silverstones.com?body=GET%20MAQ  and
sending the resulting message.


 TBUDL Mission statement

The  TBUDL  list  has  been set up for the purpose of discussing The
Bat! and how to use it. It is a community of users ready and able to
help  new  users  get to grips with some of the capabilities of this
flexible  email  client.  More  complex  issues are discussed on the
TBTECH list (see below for details).

Simply  send  messages to mailto:TBUDL@thebat.dutaint.com to send it
to the whole list.

See  the  notes  at the end of this message for details about how to
manage your list membership or to leave the list.


It  would probably be a good idea for you to set up a folder to keep
TBUDL  messages  in.  If  you do this, the next most useful thing to
have  in  place  is an automatic filter to move mail from your inbox
into your TBUDL folder.

Set up a filter for incoming mail which looks for:

Header Field [Reply-To] Contains [TBUDL@thebat]


The Roguemoticon Project


It's  nice to see your contact's face in the header ... and for them
to  see  yours. That's what roguemoticons are all about. If you wish
to add yourself, then you'll need to visit this site
http://www.pcwize.com/thebat
What  this  place  will  do  for  you  is  to allow you to create an
account,  add  your  image  and  then  let  you download a .ZIP file
containing  all  the  files  you'll  need to be able so see people's
faces  without  having  to  send  or  receive any real images in any
messages.

To trigger the roguemoticon display in the message header for anyone
reading  your  message  using  TB,  you have the choice of using the
X-Rogue: header or a signature trigger.

  How to use a signature trigger
The  image  is  triggered  by  a 'Handle' you've defined in your
account,  and  when  that  Handle  appears  in a message it gets
replaced on the client side by the corresponding image. A handle
could  look  like anything you want it to look like pretty much.
For example:
:Marck_Pearlstone:
Just add this text to your standard message signature block.

  How to create the X-Rogue: header
You can do that with this macro:
%SetHeader('X-Rogue',':your_handle:')%-  in  your  templates for
this and other tb-lists.
However, the macro alone won't do the trick.
TB'll  say: 'Hey, that's not any RFC822 header I know about', so
you'll have to define it as such:
Options  ..  Preferences .. Messages .. Message headers .. 'Add'

Now you'll get a pop-up to define the header

  Display as: X-Rogue (or whatever, it isn't very important)
  RFC header: X-Rogue
  Uncheck: 'This field is an address list' (because it isn't)
  Check: 'Allow this field to be edited in the message editor'
  Uncheck:  'Display  this  field  in the scrollable part of the
  header pane'

Now you're done and every TB-user can see your lovable face when
they've installed the roguemoticons.

For you to see peoples faces:

  To get this going, you should be running TB! v2.12 or later. Fetch
  the following file:
  http://www.pcwize.com/thebat/smileys/rogues.zip

  Unzip it to the 'Images' directory that's in your TB! installation
  directory: C:\Program Files\The Bat!\Images
  You  should  now  have a directory called 'rogues' containing many
  images  as well as the file 'rogues.msl' in your Images directory.
  Go into the preferences, and bring up the View/Editor options. Now
  hit  Shift-CTRL-Alt-T  while  TB!  is in focus. This will re-fetch
  TB!'s smiley set from disk and load the new images.

  Within TB itself, select Options -- Preferences and click on
  'Viewer/Editor and enable 'Use smiley icons in HTML editor'.
