Forwarding settings are stored in the registry (along with a lot of other info). This is normally exported during BBS Houekeeping, but can also be run manually from the BBS Actions Menu. The file (BPQMailChat.reg) can then be imported into the new machine using regedit. You also need the user file from the old bbs (BPQBBSUsers.dat). If you want to copy the whole BBS system to another machine, you can save the registry and then copy the whole BPQMailChat folder and subfolders to the new machine, then import the registry.
In either case, if you are moving from a system running XP or below to one running Vista or above you need to edit the registry file before importing. Contact me if this applies to you.
Is there a way to export the user data base with all of the connect strings one had acquired. The info to be imported into a new box.
