  Usage: mailmess | set mailmess [0|1]

There are two ways to have your messages mailed to you:

One method uses a command; the other uses a variable setting. REMINDER: only registered users can have stored messages.


Use the "mailmess" command to send to you at your e-mail address the messages currently being stored for you. In this way you can archive the messages on your own computer and then clear the message buffer on the chess server. A reduced message buffer makes new messages easier to identify and read.


When the "mailmess" variable is set to 1, each message you receive from a user will be automatically e-mailed to you at your address.
