So it is the DOS-ish path names.

You would ned to usethis feature:

PS> outbound /var/spool/ifmail/fidonet
PS> dosoutbound c:\fidonet\fidonet

and change all the *.?lo files that should be a mix of unix and dos
path names:

for i in `find /var/spool/ifmail -name "????????.?lo"`
cp $i A
cat A | sed 's|/var/spool/ifmail/fidonet|c:\\fidonet\\fidonet|' | \
tr '/' '\\' > $i
rm A

adapt to your pathnames.
