Thanks guys!

I decided to go with Ruby Mail to read messages in a mailbox that I
configured sendmail to put all messages sent to @bbs.retrobbs.org in.

This seems to work just fine... the only problem I am having is sending
messages.  Sendmail is attaching the full username of the account that
runs the BBS software.. so I am getting ...

Mark Firestone whatever / bbs.retrobbs.org

Is there anyway to override this with NET::SMTP.  I couldn't see one in
the docs...

Thanks!

Mark

One could have sendmail inject messages into the BBS, with an alias to a
pipe:

general: "|/usr/local/bbs/bin/deliver-bbs-message"
