I've been experimenting with this functionality on JNOS using GMAil.
There's a magic "+" trick in an gmail TO address where everything
after the + is ignored. Thus it should be possible to send Email to
BBS users with something like: REDBBS+n9pmo@.... My JNOS
box would POP the REDBBS messages and be smart enough to direct the
"REDBBS+n9pmo" message straight to the "n9pmo" user.
Something like that make work here for the new BPQ BBS. The GMAIL
accounts are certainly readily available, use standard Internet Email
technologies and have good spam filtering.
