I downloaded Multimail version .046, I'm using a Windows XP Pro machine.
And I've got some problems and I need help, (with the program of course,
my other problems, I doubt you all could help me with.hehe)
PKUNZIP is not wanting to unzip .QWK Packets. I've got pkzip in my root
directory, in windows/system and in windows/system32
It brings up pkunzip and attempts to decompress, but it doesn't work. It
had some switches in there, But I was told to change it to pkunzip with
a -o switch. same for pkzip, needless to say, it didn't work.
I do have the archiver setting on the BBS I telnet to, set to ZIP, it's
the only one they offer. :-)
To the author, Nice program, however, you need to make some serious
changes. Like telling the program, in the mmail.rc file, to look for
achieving files in a certain directory.
Also, you need to work on making this a "true blue" windows program, not
a DOS program with a Window Port.
Any suggestions on how to the compression work?

So what do the corresponding lines look like in your MMAIL.RC file?
If the PKZIP.EXE and PKUNZIP.EXE files are in your root, then point
MultiMail to them via the MMAIL.RC. Thusly
zipUncompressCommand: c:\pkunzip -o -j -L
zipCompressCommand: c:\pkzip -o -j
I don't use PK(UN)ZIP myself so I don't know the correct command-line
