Export Binkley-style FLO echomail/netmail

This is a key stanza you will want to run upon creation of messages written in Mystic BBS.

The '[ExportEchoMail]' stanza tells MUTIL to scan all the defined message areas (echomail & netmail) for newly created outbound mail. If it finds any newly created messages it will export them from the BBS and create message packets in a format ready for transmission to other Bulletin Board Systems.

To enable this function you modify the '[general]' stanza as follows:

[general]

ExportEchoMail     = true

There is one switch available that forces Mystic to hold off attempting to export messages until the user that has created any new messages has logged off the BBS. This is to give users their entire time logged in to edit their messages before they'll be sent.

If you want Mystic to hold off exporting messages until the user has logged off - set the following:

[ExportEchoMail]

; Do not export messages from users currently online
skip_online = true

If you want Mystic to export messages while the user is still logged - set the following:

[ExportEchoMail]

; Do not export messages from users currently online
skip_online = false
