CrashMail II

CrashMail II is a Fidonet tosser/scanner with a built-in AreaFix implementation, support for Binkley style outbound (BSO), and message filtering capabilities.

This is a fork of Johan Billing's CrashMail II distribution. Major changes in this fork include:

  • Support for 64-bit operating (POSIX) operating systems.
  • A revamped build system with integrated testing
  • No more support for non-POSIX operating systems.

If you run into any problems with this code, plase report them to the project bugtracker.


To compile CrashMail II, run make:


To run the test suite:

make tests

To install everything:

make install

If you are building packages, the Makefile supports the standard DESTDIR= option.


The man page for crashlist says:

Pointlists should be in BinkleyTerm format and should be specified after the real nodelists.

I wasn't sure what exactly a BinkleyTerm format pointlist should look like. Looking through the code, the following seems to work. Given a nodelist that looks like this:


Then your pointlist could look like this:


Or like this (if you are running CrashMail > 0.86):
