    now the question is if i can have FD and binkd both working with the
    same filebox/spool directories so that mail can be picked up by either method... i've been keeping them split and only doing part of my
    config steps when i add a new telnet connected node... when i add a
    binkp connected node, i have several more steps to do...

    The question here is: How do I create these spool directories? Every time I try to enter the STQ it says that there is no queue available... Is there a file that needs to be edited?

    you have to use xrobot to do the queue thing but FD should create the queue automatically, AFAIK... i'm pretty sure that FD will create it and maybe it is telling you that because there's nothing in it?? my fastecho and allfix both use FD's STQ to queue mail and files for sending... i have another tool which uses it when moving mail and files to my binkd BSO stuff... the thing is that i
    don't know if i can point both FD and binkd to the same filebox/spool directory... i mean, sure, i can but i don' tknow what will happen if both try to deliver the same file at the same time from the same filebox directory... the chances of that should not be very large at all but some systems that can handle multiple protocols might try to connect using more than of them at once...

    Thanks! I created it with XRobot, then I was able to customize it.

    Fortunately the latest version of Mystic allows you to create Directory
    -based feeds, so the outbound echomail is moved to a specific directory where I created the spools to crash into the Hub.

    Same stuff works on the other way around, so it's working like a nice clock.
