New Version, you can configure it now via cmd@bitmessage.ch. Just send an E-mail with "help" in the subject to the specified address and you get an answer mail with instructions and available commands.

This isn't working for me...Does this have to be done via webmail or can it also be done via thunderbird?

Also, is it possible to subscribe to any of the lists with bitmessage.ch? It would be much nicer to have those in thunderbird instead of the bitmessage native app.

You are mistaking this gateway with the bitmessage.ch service.
No, you cannot subscribe to lists currently.

I tried it with thunderbird portable and it works fine. I've got two suggstions:
- provide a binary for Mac OS X
- only get the messages for the account that logged in (maybe optional)

C# is a product from microsoft which by default runs only on windows because Mac OS does not has a .NET Framework.

I'm looking for an local replacement for https://bitmessage.ch/
since the registration for new accounts has been closed. and I have questions.

First question, would you be able to make a guide on how to set this up with Thunderbird ?
the Thunderbird has more detailed settings then the ones shown in  "Example Configuration Screen in Outlook:" such as which port-numbers to use, how the password is transmitted etc.

Second question you mention that attachments are supported, is there still the 2 mb limit as on https://bitmessage.ch/ or would the limit be the 180 mb shown here https://bitmessage.org/wiki/FAQ if connecting to someone else using bit-message ? and I think the standard email should be about 5 to 10 mb (depending on the path it takes)

third question, I have set up B2M with Thunderbird the best I could, however when I attempt to send an email it doesn't leave my machine, as best as I can tell, I get no error message, and if I open bitmessagepy it shows the message as "message sent, waiting for acknowledgement". it never receives that acknowledgement, the echo server never replies back, and when I attempt to send an email to another email account I own the message is never received. bitmessagepy shows a yellow indicator and I am told that means that it should be properly connecting to the network. sending to cmd@bitmessage.ch with the subject "help" does work and I do get a reply back. do you have any idea's on what I am doing wrong?

The registration should open again at the end of the month.

I can do that. Stick to the default settings if you are not sure, what to do (do not use encryption btw)

Second question you mention that attachments are supported, is there still the 2 mb limit as on https://bitmessage.ch/ or would the limit be the 180 mb shown here https://bitmessage.org/wiki/FAQ if connecting to someone else using bit-message ? and I think the standard email should be about 5 to 10 mb (depending on the path it takes)
The Message size is limited by bitmessage only. 180 is a theoretical limit and was decreased to 20 mb a few days ago

third question, I have set up B2M with Thunderbird the best I could, however when I attempt to send an email it doesn't leave my machine, as best as I can tell, I get no error message, and if I open bitmessagepy it shows the message as "message sent, waiting for acknowledgement". it never receives that acknowledgement, the echo server never replies back, and when I attempt to send an email to another email account I own the message is never received. bitmessagepy shows a yellow indicator and I am told that means that it should be properly connecting to the network. sending to cmd@bitmessage.ch with the subject "help" does work and I do get a reply back. do you have any idea's on what I am doing wrong?

If you do not get the acknowledgement, this is a bitmessage issue. As soon as the message shows up in the "sent" tab of the bitmessage client (not thunderbird) it is processed. You get acknowledgement, once the message is delivered. The Person you try to reach probably is unavailable. Try sending a Message to BM-GtkZoid3xpTUnwxezDfpWtYAfY6vgyHd and you should get a reply.

I'm glad to here it :), I really love that service. (I wish you allowed bigger file attachments though...)

I think I got it working. I  trouble with the port-numbers and after it insulted me a few times I found that 25 for the outgoing server works, the biggest problem was testing server "BM-orkCbppXWSqPpAxnz6jnfTZ2djb5pJKDb" took like 2 days to reply, I tried different testing servers and it worked fine.

 :-[ I had also attempted to add apinotifypath = .//BitServer.exe to the key's.dat in an effort to have pybitmessage start up BitServer.exe when launched (which it did, however it caused .net errors every-time a message was received) would it be possible to add an option to B2M to launch pybitmessage and or your email client when it's run ? (in the mean time I'll just use a batch-file to do it)

The Message size is limited by bitmessage only. 180 is a theoretical limit and was decreased to 20 mb a few days ago
good to know, it's a shame the limit was reduced that was quite an exciting feature of bit-message.

so everything on the bit-message side works, now the only question is how to I get this thing to work with standard email ? (I know bit-message is intended as a replacement, however as much as I'd rather dump email in favor of bit-message until it receives wider adoption, I still need to be able to have it compilable with standard email.)

thank you very much :)

I am doing POW for over 15'000 users. Increasing the attachment size would drastically decrease the number of processable messages.

I had also attempted to add apinotifypath [...] to start up BitServer.exe when launched (which it did, however it caused .net errors every-time a message was received) would it be possible to add an option to B2M to launch pybitmessage and or your email client when it's run ? (in the mean time I'll just use a batch-file to do it)
This could be added. The error is caused, because every time it starts it tries to listen on specific ports, which are locked after the first instance runs.


good to know, it's a shame the limit was reduced that was quite an exciting feature of bit-message.
Python probably has the poorest multi threading support I have ever seen. When receiving a message, the client is essentially locked until it is completely received, which can take ages for a 180 MB message.

so everything on the bit-message side works, now the only question is how to I get this thing to work with standard email ? (I know bit-message is intended as a replacement, however as much as I'd rather dump email in favor of bit-message until it receives wider adoption, I still need to be able to have it compilable with standard email.)
The application only is a Bitmessage interface, it cannot send mails to external domains and it will never be able to do so. (mails from home IP addresses are usually discarded by modern mail servers if you do not authenticate with it first.)

If you are talking about sending E-Mails with attachments and reconstruct them, disable the "strip headers" option in the client and it will forward E-mails into bitmessage "as is". If the receiver uses the gateway too (or has bitmessage.ch address) he gets the E-Mail including attachments back. If he uses the bitmessace client directly, he will be looking at a big pile of almost unreadable crap in BitMessage.

I figured as much, what kind of machine do you have doing all this ?

This could be added.
well that would be wonderful, since it'd be nice not to have to launch everything manually, pybitmessage, Bitserver, Then Thunderbird, and thanks for the explanation of that error.

THANK YOU ! now if only you could convince my engineering professor of this. I had an A+ in that course but really hated programing in python.... back on topic though, wouldn't that possibly provide a vector for a DOS attack ? basically send many large attachments to lock up the client on the recipient's computer and prevent it from functioning.

The application only is a Bitmessage interface
thank you for clearing that up everything seems to be working now.

Not the way it is made by now. The Application is open source and does not actually needs the GUI. You can rewrite it into a Service if you want to. Windows Services are different from linux daemons because they need to export certain functions that windows can call to start/stop/pause the service. If you are not familiar with this, there is a tutorial by microsoft: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/zt39148a(v=vs.90).aspx
