|Subject: (4.13) How does the "ME" line interact with the other lines?|
> I'm still a little confused about the ME line's second field.The man page as of INN 1.3 is much more clear on this. Basically, the
second field of the "ME" line specifies the default for the rest of the
feeds. Otherwise, it isn't used. The "active" file declares which
newsgroups you accept and don't accept.
Here are some examples:
ME:!*::: foo:!junk:... --send no newsgroups ME:*::: foo:!junk:... --send all newsgroups except junk ME:!*::: foo:*,!junk:... --send all newsgroups except junkBy the way, generally you do not want to send "junk" or "control*" to
In unoff2 (and later unoffs) the ME line also can be used to reject
articles which have certain sites in their path header.
