I found the culprit via the mail dispatcher. As it was on an account

I don't think so. The license for Voyager is included in The Bat! Pro.
I think the reasons for using the registry are historical. The

I don't know if there is a way to use environment variables in
templates, but I see why your try doesn't work. In TB!'s templates the
percent sign indicates a following macro. You might try %% instead.
This should prevent TB! from seeing the following as a macro. If it

I'm glad you brought this one up, Robert. I have been observing this
failure here for several years. I have 11 user IDs on my key, but The
Bat! will only allow for two to be used. For all others (including
this list address) I get the error message you quoted. Since then I
use GPGshell when I need GPG with one of those, because at that time
no one on TBUDL or TBBeta had an answer. But now that we are three

I remember from some time ago that TB! gets problems with too many

out to be a solution to use address book groups for this. So the filter
only needs to check if an address is in a certain group instead of
checking *all* conditions (addresses) every time. Maybe you can use this
approach too.

It isn't The Bat! that adds dashspace before any line beginning

For illustration I'll clearsign this message, and you'll see that my

Here is what Mike Daigle said on the GSWoT list (Gossamer Spider Web
of Trust, where Kevin was also a member):

,-
| It is with heavy heart that I announce the passing of Kevin Coates.
| 
| Kevin and I had been virtual acquaintances since the forming of the

I can only sign this. It was much alike here, albeit in 2003-2005
relating to The Bat! and PGP issues.

Many of you will also remember him, as he was very active on PGP
issues as well as The Bat!'s development.

An addition to Urban's proposal: you can even have your archive within
TB! without the need to load the extra 700,000 mails every time TB!
starts: create a new account for your archive and password-protect it.
Then the mails will only be loaded when you open that account.

As I see it, TB! offers to display dates in the language your computer
prefers (%DATE) or in English (%DATEEN). If your language is English,
I can see no easy way to have the date displayed in another language,
except for changing your computer's first language.

Maybe someone else knows an easier way, that I'm not aware of, to

A more general way would be this: hold alt and type 0128 on the numeric

Hi Gmail_mcristina.ramos,

I don't consider this off topic, so I crosspost my reply to TBUDL. :)

On Sun, 11 Feb 2007 15:47:54 +GMT you wrote on TBOT:

Gr I guess this is a repeated question, but can anyone tell me whether
Gr we can use Rogues and Smileys in Voyager.

Sure we can! :)) Just make sure to have your Images folder with the
Rogues and Smileys copied to the Voyager directory on the stick, and
it will work as with The Bat!.

But there are two things you should keep in mind:

Have an eye on the global.ini file in the Voyager directory. It
adds lines about the MSL files for every time you start Voyager.
https://www.ritlabs.com/bt/view.php?id=6167

Depending on your USB stick's capacity, it might be worthwhile to
delete the superfluous lines. (I'm using Voyager on a 128MB stick...)

And in case you open a message editor, it adds an entry to the
registry of the host machine.

It may very well be that it can be turned off. I haven't dug too deep
