I just downloaded your BBS server and read the documentation. It seems 
very interesting. With it I should be able to telnet (or rather "ATDT") 
to a mail server or a news server from my C64/C128. Now I'm getting 
really tempted to write an email and/or a news program for the C128 in 
80-column mode. It's just a matter of getting the time to do it.

(Btw, I just tested to telnet to my mail and news servers from the 
built-in telnet client in Win XP and sent some commands to the server to 
read news messages. It worked fine.)
