MHonArc Mailing List Archiver

Carrie Gates reported that she had generated an HTML archive of her mailbox on CSuite by running MHonArc from the command line, and it was quite satisfactory.

The next step will be to install it on CCN and subscribe it to a mailing list - CCN-tech was suggested since its present archive is broken.

Solaris Port

Jamie Fifield reported that he had some success with the Solaris port, but much remained to be done. The compile seems to be strangely sensitive to comments.

Quota management

After some discussion, it was determined that we needed to test the implementation of disk quota under Linux, and make sure that quotas were installed and activated on the appropriate file systems by touching quota in the root of the partition. We were uncertain as to whether the standard CSuite user was installed under quota by default.

David Potter will add documentation of the origin of a user's quota (by edquota from guest, upon account creation) to the Admin Documents.

ccn-operations mailing list

djm will create this zmailer list, which will be the target of various reports that need root attention.

Clarity as to which reports need to reach "office" is required - e.g. failed-modems report, failed logins report?

Return to Topic List


Creation of dot files in pilot, the file browser for Pine and Pico, needs correction.

Most other bugs are resolved, except certain key responses.

The Bounce after Compose crash under SunOS remains, as it is an OS issue.
