Hullo, I'm trying out an evaluation copy of 'The Bat!' Professional version on Windows XP Pro for the first time and am impressed with its capabilities, although I must say I find the Help menu a bit confusing.
I want to use it to send out different documents to subscribers of mine using a file of command lines, e.g. in thebat.ipc An example of a command line is: /MAILU=Julian - Appeals Worldwide;TO=S. Bird<[EMAIL PROTECTED]>;S=Amnesty letters service;A=c:\TAP\LETTERS\JN-10001.RTF;QUEUE They are all basically of this type, with several minor variations. It works fine, except for one person to whom I need to send a copy on an alternative email address. In this case, I tried: /MAILU=Julian - Appeals Worldwide;TO=Janis Knox<[EMAIL PROTECTED]>;%CC=Janis Knox<[EMAIL PROTECTED]>;S=AI Case Details;TEXT=C:\CSERVE\WWA.TXT;QUEUE But it doesn't work and, in fact, makes the programme crash. I've obviously misunderstand how to use '%CC=' - I originally had it with the % sign and didn't include the recipient's name, but it didn't work then either. Could someone kindly explain how one tells the Bat to include copies. There can be up to 100 lines in the command file, which I generate via a programme, but only a few require copies. I'm not using an address book - all the names & email addresses come straight from my database. Apologies if this is a rather elementary question, but one has to start somewhere and I couldn't find anything on it in the FAQs etc. Julian Hall P.S. I'm using the Compuserve email address as there is an anti-spam device on my broadband one. P.P.S. I've just tried with a shorter command file and no copies, but the Bat didn't read all the lines. Originally, the opening prompt asking for Registration appeared to be stopping the Bat reading all the data, so now I have programme already open before creating 'thebat.ipc'. Is this the problem? ________________________________________________ http://www.silverstones.com/thebat/TBUDLInfo.html
