Hi there,
I've set up a local message area and set "Msg Kinds" to "Private". I
uderstand that by doing things this way, only the sender and addressee of a
specific message can read it. Still, other users can use "Quickscan" to view
who sent a specific message, who was the addressee for that message and what
its subject was.

My assumption would be that if "Msg Kinds" is set to "Private", a user
would only be able to see his/her sent/received messages. It seems to work
that way if "Msg Kinds" is set to "Private" on a non-local, Echomail message
area.

In other ways: is it possible to have a non-networked (local) but private
message area similar to what "personal messages" are on other BBS systems?

Kind regards,
Niels
