AmiGate - FidoNet<->UUCP gating software
Glumsoevej 21 st.tv.
Basically AmiGate will convert your UUCP news/emails into FidoNet
echomail/netmail and the other way around. That's it.
Short feature list:
o Public or private gating.
o Fully FidoNet FTS/FSC compliant.
o Direct support for DLG user.data.
o Mailing list -> Echomail conversion.
o Crossposting can be ignored. (Eg. only posted to the first
o MIME-support (also for quoted-printable).
o Will not post to moderated areas but instead send email to
o FidoNet bouncing. Will inform sender if something goes wrong.
o Optional accounting for emails.
o Total customization of how to port the headers in UUCP

alternative to the mail and news readers available on the Amiga.

o AmigaUUCP v1.17 or higher. 1.16 will work but generates dubious
All binaries, sources, and man pages for 1.17b4 are available
for anonymous ftp from Hopper.ITC.Virginia.EDU:/pub/amiga and
for BMS from adastra.cvl.va.us.
o traplist.library version 4 or higher.
o FidoNet editor/tosser of your choice. Spot recommended for
o Probably won't be of much use without a modem.
