RE: [BPQ32] Losing messages.
When you shut down the BBS after receiving the 5 messages, were the messages in dirmes.sys? I need to know if the messages are not being saved correctly, or being lost on restart. If the latter, could you send me (off list) the dirmess.sys before restarting, and a copy of the message files, and I’ll try running it here.
I don’t know of anyone using 64 bit Vista , but the code works on 64 bit WIN7, and there isn’t anything in the file handling that should be affected by the OS version.

Subject: [BPQ32] Losing messages.
Howdy. In my first run of mailchat I was trying to
import messages from a .EXP file, and was having
trouble with all but 7 of the messages disappearing, and
the last 7 being displayed corrupted in the bbs. I got rid of
all messages and started with a fresh dirmes.sys and wfbid.sys.
I connected to a forwarding partner and got 5 messages, and all
5 were reported as being ready for my other forwarding
partners. After closing the bbs though, the 5 messages
disappeared on restart. The dirmes.sys had no entries, but
dirmes backup file shows the 5. There are 5 .MES files in the
mail directory, and 5 bids in wfbid.
My bpq setup is in a folder d:\Abpq32 and D is a 2 gig fat16 partition
on harddrive 1. My OS is vista 64bit on a 40 gig NTFS as C:\.
The path in the configuration for mailchat shows
the proper D:\Abpq32\BPQMailChat and the main .exe is in
abpq32. It used to be in bpqmailchat folder but the most recent
installer moved it to Abpq32.
I just can't figure out what may be happening with my
setup. Any help much appreciated.
