::::::::::::: :: ADDRESS :: ::::::::::::: Mails can be forwarded to other BBS. User mails will be erased after forward, bulletins will be kept and therefore copies exist in other BBS. In user mails always the address of the BBS is specified for which the mail is destinied. This BBS has to be addressed clearly, i.e. the further away it is, the exacter the address has to be specified. Generally speaking: mails into foreign countries must contain the complete hierarchical address. If the recipient and MYBBS is well known, the H-address is automatically added. The H-address of each BBS world wide is defined by the sysop of that BBS. Do not change any part of the H-address in addressing a user mail, otherwise your mail never reaches target BBS. The structure of such a hierarchical address is: DB0AAB.#BAY.DEU.EU ^ Continent, EU stands for Europe ^ Country, DEU stands for Germany ^ Region of the country ^ Call of the BBS Examples for continents: AF Africa AS Asia AU Australia EU Europe MDLE MiddleEast (e.g. Israel) NA North America SA South America Examples for countries: AUT Austria CHE Switzerland BEL Belgium DEU Germany DNK Denmark FIN Finland FRA France HUN Hungary ITA Italy NLD Netherlands SWE Sweden SLO Slovenia SVK Slovakia TCH Czech Republik In bulletins always a distribution address is specified. A distribution address includes a group of BBS. Examples of distribution addresses for bulletins: BAY Bavaria DL German speaking area OE Austria USA United States EU Europe WW World Wide The distribution addresses ALL and ALLE should not be used any more and will not be forwarded any longer. Do not confuse the addressing of user mails with the one of bulletins! There must be agreements about all addresses between sysops of BBS, regional for regional addresses and world wide for word wide addresses. With DIR PATH you get all valid addresses known by this BBS.
