Thanks for all your help on Christmas day!!
I can't get the old messages to show. I copied all the /bbs message folders over along with the addresses.txt file to the "Main" folder in the BBS folder. The two existing files there were messagelist and messagelist.lock. I also have a messagelist file in the old location. Should that be transferred? I did a rebuild via the browser (with ?rebuild) but nothing happens.
