    Astute readers will recall that I incorrectly gave my DOVEnet message
    areas static QWK conference numbers. I've changed them all to Dynamic,
    and now I'm seeing TECH_TALK messages in SYNC_DATA - but only in my
    Multimail, my QWK reader. If I read locally on the board, they're in the correct area.

    I knew that some settings were stored on the BBS, found the
    \sbbs\data\user directory. I tried moving all of the 0000.* files
    corresponding to me out, but I'm still seeing TECH_TALK messages in the incorrect area.

    Has anyone seen this before?

    Is it possible you have a stale CONTROL.DAT file that Multimail is using?

    Are you sure you moved the correct files? The sysop should be user 1, so your data files would be 0001.*
