WinSock Remailer Accepting Only PGP Messages Starting September
Due to the large number of inconsiderate users and spammers,
the vast majority of whom do not use PGP, we are changing the
operation of the WinSock Remailer at [email protected] to accept
only incoming messages that are encrypted with PGP. This
change will become effective September 16, 1996 at 9:00 PM EDT.
On a brighter note, a new release of the WinSock Remailer will
be available on September 17. In addition to bug fixes, a
number of new features have been added including:
- support for shared or exclusive POP account (the operator
will be able to operate the remailer from his personal
account; messages without proper remail headers will be
left in the mail spool for retrieval with any other POP
- support for changing the outgoing message pool size on the
Outgoing Mail dialog box.
- remailer now accepts "help" in addition to "remailer-help"
to retrieve the help file for the remailer. A large
number of help requests were piling up in the reject
directory, so this should cure that problem.
And yes, the bug that prevented the remailer from operating
in PGP Only mode, has been fixed. :-)
