make no claim as to fitness for any purpose or absence of any errors,
and offer no warranty. Do not eat.


2. Spam

you wouldn't believe how much spam I get to this address.


3. Where are the Questions?

most of them are implicit. this is more of a `Frequently Wanted
Information' listing than a FAQ listing.

just pretend you're on `Jeopardy!', and everything will be fine.


4. Charter

[ traffic relating to ms-windows and os/2 would be welcome until such
a time (if ever) that traffic warranted creation of groups under

- almost anything involving usenet (RFC1036) under msdos
- almost anything involving DNS mail (RFC822) under msdos
- almost anything involving PCMAIL (RFC1056) under msdos

5. QWK

as QWK has several built-in limitations in its headers, many (or
most) QWK-to-news programs produce articles which are not compliant
with RFC1036, thus these topics are off-charter.

however, there are notices of QWK packages that get around these
limitations, in much the same way normal news articles do -- by
including the full text of the headers in the text, separated by
a blank line. in addition, there are hopes of QWK user agents
which recognize these headers and work with them as well as any
non-QWK user agent. and finally, the reported official successor
to QWK will support `Internet' (sic) headers.

discussion of _these_ topics is, of course, directly on-charter.


6. `offline'

the word `offline' means different things to different people, and
it seems sometimes that neither group understands what the other
is talking about. naturally, this leads to confusion.

for some, `offline' means: using local processing power to
compose messages locally, manage files, and do various other
things, instead of using your PC as a $10 surplus terminal.
this is often accomplished using such tools as uucp.

for others, `offline' goes further, and means: using local
processing power to do things, without having the PC set up
as a distinct site. very, very similar tasks are done in
very, very similar (but occasionally weirdly incompatible)
ways. this is often accomplished using such tools as uqwk.
there is a very good standards document available known as
`soup12.zip' which outlines a way to eliminate some of the
incompatibilities. (see the section on `ftp' for how to
find a location near you.) soup (simple offline usenet
packets) is based on hdpf/hpf (helldiver packet format)
and an enhanced hdpf named slnp (simple little news packets).

I will attempt to avoid use of the word `offline' here.

Message-ID: <3k6bv8$t...@hustle.rahul.net>

Suppose I have a high-powered Sun machine that gets, oh, 6 incoming
newsfeeds totalling a couple of hundred megs a day. If I read or
post news on it, am I reading or posting offline? (Probably not, you
might say.)

What if I cut it down to, say 2 incoming news feeds and 50 megs a day?

One incoming newsfeed and 3 megs a day? A sporadic incoming newsfeed
that's rather selective based on my tastes, a couple of hundred
kbytes a day?

Just what is meant by offline news reading?

8. Books and Online Resources

there are a large number of books on every shelf I've seen about how to
connect your PC to the Internet via SLIP, and a lot of them come with
sampler packs. there are other FAQs that list them. I want to concentrate
on books which cover uucp, or focus on mail/news, not on a run-of-the-mill
SLIP connection.

9. ftp and how to get files from the Internet

9a. help is easy to obtain

there are many good introductory materials on how to use ftp and
transfer files around the Internet (and beyond). some are available
as books in your local library/bookstore (go ahead, ask the person
behind the counter), and some are available as other FAQ files.

if you're confused, your best first action is to ask someone locally.
ask the person or machine from whom/which you got this file you're
reading right now for help. they're a lot more likely to know the
commands that will work for you than anyone across the planet.

or, if it's 4 a.m., you might try sending mail to the id
``mail-...@rtfm.mit.edu''. if prompted for a Subject: to
use, just use ``help''. when entering text, just use one line,
and again, just use ``help''.

if you have a web browser, it will probably ftp files for you
automatically, and you can skip this section.

if you're on an Internet-connected machine, you might want to try
going through the following, to see if it works. if not, your best
bet is again: asking someone local who's in the know.

(we'll assume your email address is ch...@some.site for this section)

you see something like... you type...
---------------------- --------

ftp rtfm.mit.edu

ftp: Command not found.

not all of those steps were absolutely necessary, but they work.


9b. where to find software

much of the software discussed in c.o.m.ma can be obtained via ftp
from these (and many other) places:

ftp.gte.com:/pub
ftp.halcyon.com:/pub/waffle

ftp.coast.net:/Coast/msdos/uucp (also waffle, offlinemail)

{following 3 are unknown -- simtel was coast.net, then simtel.net}
wuarchive.wustl.edu:/systems/ibmpc/msdos/uucp
ftp.uu.net:/systems/ibmpc/msdos/simtel/uucp
oak.oakland.edu:/SimTel/msdos/uucp

{following 2 are unknown -- cica=>winsite.com}
ftp.cica.indiana.edu:/pub/pc/win3
gatekeeper.dec.com:/pub/micros/msdos/win3

ftp.coast.net:/Coast/win3/winsock (also offline)


9c. archie

for help with archie, which can locate files for you on ftp sites
world-wide, send mail to (for instance)

arc...@archie.rutgers.edu
arc...@archie.sura.net
arc...@archie.mcgill.ca [the original site]

for a Subject: line, use `help', and in the text of the message,
just use one line -- `help'.

there may an archie server nearer to you. any of these will be
able to tell you.

you may already have an `archie' command installed on your
machine. you will likely get quicker responses from the server
if you do, and you use that version instead. but it's up to
your system administrator and network connection.


9d. not on the Internet: accessing ftp archives

first, ask someone local -- they may already have the files you need!

(obviously, most of the following methods will cost you phone
charges of some sort, an access charge, or both. know the
charges before transferring files)

for the (old) simtel collection:

- many BBSs carry the CD-ROM copy, and allow free X/Y/Zmodem downloads
- Detroit Download Central +1 313 885 3956 allows X/Y/Zmodem downloads
- ftp.uu.net 1-900-GOT-SRCS allows anonymous uucp (id uucp, no password)
use `uucp uunet!~/help uunet-help' for the help file

waffle and offlinemail portions only:

- remote.halcyon.com allowed anonymous uucp (id: nuucp, password: nuucp)
use `uucp remote!~/00-index.txt .' for the master file list for anon uucp
note that remote also carries the ftp.halcyon.com collection!
[currently unavailable, hoped to return]

for other collections:

there is a common service known as `ftp-by-mail' -- it allows you to
transfer files through email. keep in mind that most mail transfer
setups are designed for very short messages (most mail that I get here
is under 4k), and that ftp-by-mail systems will happily send a 2 meg
file all at once (usually, it will be in a lot of pieces, but it
still takes unexpected amounts of disk space to store them). thus,
I (personally) recommend this be used only when clear permission has
been obtained from the place that would be most affected by doing this.

I repeat:

check with the person who runs your site, or if you run your own site,
check with the site(s) that you connect to that would also have to bear
the burden.

once you have everyone's ok, send mail to any of the many archive
servers to get started. for instance, for archive...@halcyon.com
the subject=`help', text=one line, `help'.


9e. not on the Internet: accessing archie

you can send mail to archie@<the archie server you want to use>, whether
you're on the Internet or not.


10. RFCs

RFC stands for ``Request For Comment''. the RFCs are numbered
documents which lay out proposed standards for how machines
can communicate over the Internet (more or less).

if you are writing any news or mail software, you definitely want to
(actually, need to!) consult the relevant RFCs. this is not only the
case if your machine is directly connected to the Internet, but also
if you intend to generate mail or news that may travel over the
Internet at some point. they can be obtained via ftp from these
(and many other) places:

wuarchive.wustl.edu:/doc/rfc/rfc822.txt.Z
/doc/rfc/rfc1036.txt.Z
/doc/rfc/rfc1123.txt.Z
ftp.uu.net:/inet/rfc/rfc822.Z
/inet/rfc/rfc1036.Z
/inet/rfc/rfc1123.Z
ftp.zoo.utoronto.ca:/pub/news.txt.Z (this is a draft of 1036's successor)

other RFCs of interest:
rfc1939: POP (Post Office Protocol)
rfc2060: IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol)

11. announcements

much of the software discussed in comma is available for ftp and
announced in the group `comp.archives.msdos.announce'. when
sending in the announcement, please take a moment to indicate at
the top which groups you feel the announcement should be crossposted
to (eg. comp.os.msdos.mail-news, or alt.usenet.offline-reader, or
comp.bbs.waffle). this makes the c.a.m.a moderator's job easier,
as well as allowing everyone who reads comma and c.a.m.a to see the
announcements only once.

a c.a.m.a moderator writes:

> If the uploader includes the Usenet "Newsgroups: " and "Folloup-To: "
> information either in the header or as the first two lines of the upload
> announcement that is mailed to me, it will be automatically used for the
> posting - unless it is inappropriate, in which case it will be edited to
> delete the inappropriate newsgroup(s).

14. How can I get mail/news on my PC at home?

14a. I have a UNIX login, but don't want to tie up the phone lines.

[not only will you not tie up the phone lines, but you'll be able
to use your favorite editor, take your time formulating and
revising text, easily archive all your outoing messages, etc.]

check out alt.usenet.offline-reader -- this may be the easiest
solution for you. it requires little or no effort on your admin's
part, if your system lets you compile and execute random C source,
but the tools currently available may not be what you're looking
for if you want more than `n' groups (where `n' ranges widely
for different people)

or, you could ask for a `mail feed' or `news feed' and see:


14b. I can get a `feed' -- but what do I do with it?

you'll need to know a little about it -- is the data transmitted
to you via the UUCP standard, or the NNTP standard? UUCP is a
general-purpose file transfer protocol, and often comes with
programs to handle (also called `transfer', `unbatch', or `toss')
mail and news. NNTP transfers news over an Internet Protocol
connection (and for info on how to get one of those, check out
comp.protocols.tcp-ip.ibmpc).


14c. I'm reading over someone's shoulder.

will their site give you a feed? will they give one the person
whose shoulder it is you're reading over, so they could feed you?


14d. I want better software than what I've got now.

what is it compatible with? there's probably something out there
already.


15. How can I use waffle newsreaders with other packages?

for reading only:

I've done this with two packages, myself (alpha3!commafaq). rnr
is much easier, since you can just pass it all the stuff it needs
on the command-line, in environment variables, or in a config file.

of course, rnr now works with waffle and uupc natively.

(for software locations, see that part of the Comma FAQ)

for helldiver, you have to also fake a password file:

first: get rnr and read the section in rnr.doc on how to
use rnr without waffle installed.

then, create a dummy password file for helldiver in waffle/admin/
that is of this format:

<256 bytes of random junk>username#10#10#10#10#10Your Full Name#10

`username' is your user id
`#10' is ascii 10 -- the LF
`Your Full Name' is your human-readable name

make sure the file size ends up a multiple of 256 bytes (not
necessary possibly, but sure can't hurt)

I think that's what I did to make it work, but it's been a while
now and I may have missed a step.


16. How can I decode proprietary Microsoft TNEF attachments?

(TNEF=Transport-Neutral Encapsulation Format)
see <ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/developr/MAPI/UTIL/TNEFDUMP/td32.exe>


998. spelling

it's == it is, it has. "It's a nice day." "It's been great."
its ~= his, her, their. "The dog is chasing its rival."
you're == you are, you were. "You're right."
your ~= his, her, their. "You should watch your spelling."
lose == make not findable "Don't lose your watch." (pron. looz)
loose == not well-fastened "The steering wheel is loose." (pron. looss)
they're == they are "They're crazy."
their ~= his, her, your "The dogs are chasing their rivals."
there == a place or situation "He is over there." "There is no food."
supersedes has no c.
definitely has no a.
compatible and compatibility each have an a, but only one.
don't use "'s" to make a plural -- "two car's" and "two RFC's" are both wrong

Comp.Os.Msdos.MAil-news == c.o.m.ma == comma
FAQ == Frequently Asked Questions

comma is about uucp, mail, and news for msdos or ms-windows or os2.

The comp.os.msdos.mail-news FAQ lists can be obtained via all
news.answers access methods:

quoting the news.answers FAQ:

``
Where are *.answers archived?

All of the *.answers newsgroups are archived in the periodic posting
archive on rtfm.mit.edu [18.181.0.24]. Postings are located in the
anonymous ftp directories /pub/usenet/alt.answers,
/pub/usenet/comp.answers, etc., and are archived by "Archive-name".
Other subdirectories of /pub/usenet contain periodic postings that may
not appear in *.answers (as well as most of the *.answers postings),
saved by Subject line rather than by Archive-name.

If you do not have anonymous ftp access, you can access the archives
by mail server as well. Send an E-mail message to
mail-...@rtfm.mit.edu with "help" and "index" in the body on
separate lines for more information.
''

Note that the charter of comp.os.msdos.mail-news _explicitly_ covers
mail, news, and uucp under msdos and compatibles, and used to cover
ms-windows and os2 until they got their own groups (although uucp
under ms-windows didn't, so it can stay). the FAQs still list
information for os2 users and ms-windows users.

1000. notes and index


1001. Disclaimer

Read at your own risk. The current, previous, or original authors


make no claim as to fitness for any purpose or absence of any errors,
and offer no warranty. Do not eat.

1002. I want mail and/or news on msdos! what software is there?

then read on! this part of the FAQ is the big answer to that one
question. to use it, you'll need to know: how will you be sent
mail? (usual choices: uucp/rmail, SMTP/POP/IMAP) how will you
be sent news? (usual choices: uucp/rnews, NNTP)


1003. summary only - no reviews

this is (right now) a summary only. if you feel more information
is required to be useful, mail me, keeping in mind that there is
another posting which has a lot of detail (esj's `personal uucp'
list). it is posted very infrequently. due to illness, it has
not been updated for quite some time, as far as I know.

this post is meant primarily to let people know what is available,
so they can grab the packages and evaluate them for themselves.

if you are looking for reviews, post your requirements and see
who else knows what you need. please do not be vague -- no one
can help you when you just say you're looking to evaluate some
`mail packages'. what kind of network is in place? or is it for
a single-user site? how much are you willing to pay per seat?
what sort of interface do you need? what platform? how
sophisticated are your users? etc.

I will not be putting any reviews in here, partly because they would be
difficult to maintain, and partly because I want to avoid any flak from
a negative review which I did not write.

if you want to periodically post a collection of reviews, go ahead.
you don't need my approval.


code requires
---- --------
[dvx] DesqView/X
[geo] GEOS (probably will require v2.0? none on the list yet)
[msw] MS Windows (often requires v3.1)
[os2] OS/2 (often requires v2.1)
[wnt] MS Windows NT

I have tried to complete all the required codes. however, I have
not tried all packages personally. if I am missing one for your
package, please inform me, so that people who do not have the required
underlying software do not waste time or money obtaining it. thanks.


1004. what the addresses mean

when a location reference is given that looks like this:
``wuarchive.wustl.edu:/mirrors/msdos/uucp/00-index.txt''
this does not imply that it is the only place where the file
is available on the Internet. you may want to use `archie'
or any web search engine to help you locate the closest
(network-cost-wise) copy of the file.

for brief help with archie, see the comma intro.

the Coast to Coast Software Repository seems to have disappeared
in mid-1998.

the special entry ``coast:'' indicates the Coast to Coast
Software Repository collection, available in many places, including
CD-ROMs, and its main ftp mirror, ftp.coast.net:/Coast/ -- if you
connect to <http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/> you'll get a list of mirrors.

most files can be found at <http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/msdos/>,
and in particular <http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/msdos/waffle.html>,
<http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/msdos/uucp.html>, and
<http://simtel.coast.net/Coast/msdos/offline.html>.

Coast to Coast seems to be in the process of discontinuing their
Software Repository.

Coast/SimTel had decided to stop allowing files which do not include
the address and phone number of the author, which annoys me
to no end. there are rumors that this policy has been dropped;
if not, consider alternate sites.

Coast to Coast used to use the name `SimTel', but has renamed its
collections directories (but probably not all the mirrors) to `Coast',
so I have reflected that change here.

the special entry ``simtelnet:'' indicates the SimTel.net collection,
available in many places, including CD-ROMs, and its main ftp
mirror, ftp.simtel.net:/pub/simtelnet/ -- if you connect to
<http://www.simtel.net/simtel.net/> you'll get a list of mirrors [?].

SimTel.net, which is clearly not a network provider, and is thus
badly misnamed, is run by Walnut Creek (a Net-friendly CD-ROM vendor).

the special entry ``cica:'' indicates the cica collection,
available in many places, including CD-ROMs, and its primary
ftp site, ftp.cica.indiana.edu:/pub/pc/win3/.

see also ftp.winsite.com , cica's new home(?).

the file name reflects the latest version that I knew of (or was
told of) at the time this FAQ was sent out. if you know a newer
one is available, and there was no announcement posted to comma
after a week or so, please send me the information for inclusion
(or better yet, post the entire announcement to comma so everyone
can get the whole story, instead of just the summary here).

see also the `announcements' section in the comma intro on how to
get the announcements automatically crossposted to comma.


1005. maintainer index

this information is culled from public postings to newsgroups,
or files available to the public on the Internet. because of
this, I have not tried all the addresses to make sure they are
still functional, nor do I have the time to do a routine check
of them every so often.

you may also want to check, e.g.,
ftp://garbo.uwasa.fi/pc/pd2/author35.zip
ftp://garbo.uwasa.fi/pc/pd2/authwn07.zip

please do not abuse these people's time -- send them mail specific
to their own products, not about how to get files via ftp. that
gives them more time to work on software, and that benefits us all.

if you have some burning questions, the best thing you could
possibly do is to check out news.newusers.questions -- there's
a lot of information already there.

maintainers:
if I have the wrong address or a suboptimal address listed here,
_please_ contact me directly so that I can correct it for you as
quickly as possible. I don't want to put any email addresses in
here that don't want mail. thanks.

some addresses are for people who ported a package from one platform
to another, not the author(s) of the original package.

1006. location index

if you are the maintainer of a package, and I have shown a site
that you feel is not appropriate, please let me know. if I have
shown a frequently-updated mirror site, keep in mind that using
a mirror site that has everything on it may be easier for users than
having to go to a different site for every package. if I have shown
a site which mirrors, but too infrequently, please inform me of a
better reference.

many of these files come from the coast repository. the main
site is ftp.coast.net but http://www.coast.net will give you
a list of mirrors worldwide and connect you to them.

please try to strike a balance between instant availability of
the newest versions and practical ability to handle the transfers.
if your software is available on a bogged down SLIP link and two
days later on ftp.uu.net, I would rather point people to the latter.

2000. uucp

2001. discussion

at the heart of uucp is `uucico', which is a file transfer protocol,
like kermit or zmodem. however, with uucp it is easier, or at least
there are conventions which make it portably _possible_, to do some
networking/system administration tasks, like:

- queue a file transfer to be done automatically at a later time
when phone rates are lower

- assign a command to be run once a file is received
(common examples include rmail for delivering mail, and rnews
for unbatching network news). this command can have parameters,
such as an address to pass to rmail

uucp has, historically, often been poorly/incompletely implemented,
and these poor/incomplete implementations have often been relatively
slow. this does not mean uucp itself is slow, and we are seeing
more uucp implementations of late which are fast, yet still as
network-capable as uucp has always been.

the 2000s section will look at uucico implementations. often, these
come with add-ons to make up a full uucp suite -- uucp, uux, uuqueue,
and similar programs.

3000. mail/news transport agents, batchers, servers

3001. discussion

some packages work with messages stored on disk and transferred to other
machines later (often using uucp, and the rmail and rnews commands),
while others send or receive the mail immediately over a network
connection (often using SMTP, POP, or IMAP for mail, and NNTP for news).

5000. mail/news user agents

5001. discussion

some sites mount their news disks over (e.g.) NFS, so the news appears
as, for instance, x:\news\comp\mail\misc\22694 (this would be the
22694th article in the group comp.mail.misc). on such a system, you
should be able to read mail or news with any of the `filesystem'
packages (possibly with some extra setup). most other IP network
(TCP/IP, SLIP, PPP) connections are with NNTP, SMTP, POP, or IMAP.

with some tweaking (usually just duplication of configuration files)
you can often read mail/news with any of the filesystem-based
packages (snews' separate format is the biggest exception). you
might not be able to post/reply very easily, due to the more
drastic differences in the file layouts the uucico modules expect.
unfortunately, uucp often deals with file names like D.foo2b6IC
which Unix sites can handle easily, but msdos cannot. there are
a few obvious ways to translate these names to msdos-compatible
names, but, unfortunately, they're not compatible with each other.

there have been intentions posted of having more software work with
more of the uucico layouts, which is a Good Thing. waffle and
fsuucp, at least, have explicitly documented their conversion routines
in the past (and fsuucp has moved to waffle-compatible munging). and
uupc ships with source.

8001. discussion

why is source important? ...

if you're looking for projects, instead of writing yet another
newsreader from scratch, maybe consider...
- a library of routines that work with a bunch of packages, so
that people can use the same software with different uucp packages
- a library of routines that work with a bunch of packages, so that
people can use the same software with different dos tcp/ip stacks
- a good uucp setup/configuration program
- a free uucico with source and no security holes
- a winsock emulator for flat-file news setups to make accessing
news with an nntp reader possible
- ...
- suggestions?
