    Sorry about that, this also falls under the extended chars, it won't happen again but this was sent.

    That too, but that wasn't my point for this message.

    You're sending a "commercial" into the world. If the message isn't readable by part of your targeted audience, your doing it wrong. ;)

    Bye, Wilfred.

    Yes, I took it like that also, thanks for pointing that out.

    I will have another made that contains no extended characters.

    Thanks for your feedback, it's been taken constructively.

    Regards,

    If you goto mystic -cfg >> config >> message base settings and then look for

    Add [ANSI] Prefix Yes
    Add Re: Prefix Yes

    Setting those to yes will add the ANSI prefix to the subject line for anything you post with ANSI in it. That way people who can't read i can opt to skip it :)

    Hope that helps. I liked the artwork :)

    What character set is this written in? There is no CHRS: kludge... ;-)

    Yes, however, I found that using the postfile stanza appears to skip that.
    Will do more testing and check with g00r00 when he returns. My echo config
    was already set like this, but apprently didn't work. I may add the tag manually on the subject line.

    Hope that helps. I liked the artwork :)

    For the sig, don't worry, it still exist on all the other echos :)

    Yep, I think you're correct those message base settings only impact messages posted from within Mystic (like the one I am posting now) and the MUTIL function does not look to them. Agree worth mentioning to g00r00 as a
    possible tweak.

    It's an signature saved as ANSI then imported into Mystic. I have turned off the signatures I post in Amiganet so you're not inconvenienced by things you may not be able to read. :)

    Hmm, it should be off now, let's try again

    I'm not inconvenienced, I can easily ignore it! ;)

    Just pointed out the flaw of high-ascii without the CHRS: kludge. If there was a (correct) CHRS: kludge it would be my problem to make it readable in my reader/editor. ;)
