Okay, so perhaps this is all that is needed :


in your config.h, then :

    rm mboxmail.o

This was a point of contention (perhaps) between Brian (SK) and myself,
or partially related to this SP without a BID, you could try and use the
above 'solution' to deal with the issue ? already forgotten about it :|

The original JNOS probably allowed both, at the risk of a user trying to
send a message without a BID ? because if you are marked as BBS, there
was a risk of that, or something like that. I will have to take a closer
look at this again, sorry - anyways, in mboxmail.c there is :

      /* 24Dec2020, Maiko, for Red (PE1RRR) */

So this alone might not 'fix' the real issue, just saying ...
