I'm using 2.14tx8.10 in debian.

I've found a bounce of:

cannot stat: No such file or directory

in ifdebug debug file. There's no date, timestamp... so i've no clue to
determine where i can find the ``bug''.

Now a proposal. In most fidotech network there's a GIGO gateway that
assign email address to point, eg:

Stefano Trevisan, 1907:393/104.21 ->

Because i'm runnning a linux/ifmail bbs dialup connected to the
Internet, it is better for Stefano to use me as a Gateway system,
instead of the official one (that can be some hops far from me).

But if Stefano use me as a gateway, message go out with From like:

From: Stefano.Trevisan@p21.f104.n393.z1907.scoutnet.ftn

clearly a fake/invalid address.

There's a way, like a database, to put address in and take automatic

Using sed in mail spool queue is a solution, but this is a *simple*
solution, another not so simple but rather valid are:

Laura Piani, 61:3917/1.6 ->

or (my syster, wife of Stefano ;):

Maria Luisa Gaiarin, 1907:393/104.21 ->
Maria Luisa Gaiarin <>

[effectively email are assigned to a point, not to an address!]

I've explained clearly the problem?! ;)
Can i use some of the ifmail databases for this, or another feature
have to be added?! ;)))
