We are excited to release new functionality to enable a 1-click import from Google Code onto the Allura platform on SourceForge. You can import tickets, wikis, source, releases, and more with a few simple steps. Read More
I just realized something, William. Hope you're doing well; it's been
a while since I've been active anywhere (FidoNet, here, etc.). Too
Anyway, I just realized, unless I'm missing something, that there's no
way in MultiMail, while in SOUP mode, to enter/send an email unless
you're reading a SOUP packet that has email in it. Pressing the "E"
results in MM prompting you for a newgroup (conference in this case)
into which to place the message/email.

If you expand the area list ('L'), the Email area will appear, and you can
then Enter a message into it.
SOUP packets, like QWK packets, have no method of indicating the
subscribed area list. Hence, the default is the Active area list, and the
Email area doesn't appear unless it contains messages, or you switch to
the full list. I fixed this at one point by forcing Email to be included
in the Subscribed list, regardless of whether it contained messages; but I
broke it again in 0.38 when I made Active the default for those packet
types (like QWK and SOUP) which lacked an authoritative Subscribed list. I
could perhaps flag SOUP packets as having a Subscribed list, but that
would be misleading, and might break something (though I'm a bit vague on
