NOTICE: If you are currently using HappyMail with Win95 or WinNT, you are advised to upgrade to the 32-bit version. Browse the Javelina Software site for more information on a downloadable version of the new, 32-bit HappyMail.

HappyMail, a Windows-based Banyan VINES e-mail client. This is (16-bit) version 1.19n, and contains the fix that allows e-mail messages greater than 6K. HappyMail was written by David Ritchie, who no longer supports the 16-bit version. My modifications were performed for a company I used to work for, and are now provided -- also unsupported -- to the public. This version should also work for Win95 users as well as VINES 7 users.

If you already have a version of HappyMail up and running, and only need the latest executable (version 1.19n of HMAIL.EXE), you can download it here at only 216K: HMAILEXE.ZIP.

The original source code to happy mail can be found at ftp://ftp.csus.edu/pub/banyan/src/ as hmcode.zip.
If you're at all interested in the (long, boring) history of the changes I've made to HappyMail, and how they came about, here it is.

Server Time. SvrTime will scan your network for all servers and report back the time each one THINKS it is... A handy way of making sure all servers are time synched. You can also select specific servers. Updated to version 1.3 on 7/18/96.

Click here to download (115K). SVRTIME

Server Time Update. SvrTimUp will check one or more specified VINES servers' times' against a master server or local PC's time. If any of the servers is out of sync more than a specified number of minutes, then a specified server is updated with the master server/local PC time. This specified server should be the "upstream" server to all the servers that are being checked against, so that it will propagate the time change to all the other servers. This utililty, in a way, mimics the TimeOut processes that is built into VINES, but will let a source other than a single server (for example, a local PC) in essense become the master 'keeper of the time.' (Yeah, I know, it doesn't make much sense unless you already know what I'm talking about.) Updated to version 1.12 on 4/11/97. [This version has a known problem with time changes past midnight.]

ListAnlz (StreetTalk List Analyzer) is a VINES/Windows utility which enumerates StreetTalk lists based on a pattern, then checks to see if the list name is valid or if the list is empty, then checks each member of the list for validity. After the process completes, there are buttons that can easily remove individuals or all invalid user names. Shareware. Updated to version 1.2 on 4/3/97.

SvrStat is a VINES/Windows utility which will report 6 vital statistics from a selected server: Local PC time, free process memory, 1 minute load average, message average, CPU percent idle, and the server time. Versions 1.03 and later have a crude graphics view of the statistics, making it a bit easier to notice trends. This program is freeware. Updated to version 1.04 on 10/2/96

(Warning: This version requires the Borland Database Engine, as well as the Chart2FX.VBX and BIVBX11.DLL files; if you don't have them, you can download them now (151K) : Chart2FX.ZIP. After you unzip it, put them in your \WINDOWS\SYSTEM subdirectory. If you don't have the BDE, then please e-mail me and I can e-mail it to you, but it is about 1.5 Mb. Although it's "expensive" in disk space and download time, it's also free, so that's the route I decided to take on this one.)

STLMgr (StreetTalk List Manager) is a VINES/Windows utility which provides an easy method of querying StreetTalk lists for a users name based on a list mask (wildcard). STLMgr also allows you to add a user, delete a user, add a user if a specified user is a member of a list, delete a user if a specified user is a member of a list, and replace a specified user with another user if the specified user is a member of the list. Updated to version 1.3 on 7/23/96.

WinSend (VINES Windows Send command) is a VINES/Windows utility which replaces the Z: drive copy of WINSEND. This version provides STDA lookup, and pre-pends the senders name on to the message so the recipient knows who sent the message. An optional 2-line send will first send a message saying who the next message is from, then send the message. This version will also notify the sender if the user is not currently logged in. Updated to version 1.7 on 8/1/96.

SvrTimeToLocal (STTL) is a Vines 32-bit-only utility which provides a method of updating the local PC based on the date/time setting of a server. This utility was written primarily for NT workstations which, when logging into VINES, are not automatically synchronized with the server. This utility works from the command line (which means you can have it run from PostLogin) or it can be run interactively. Version 1.0 on 10/14/96.

VINES Group-to-Server (GRP2SVR) is a Vines utility which is a nice-to-have tool for administrators. How many times have you come across a user having problems, and you wondered what server they are on? This program will answer that quickly. The first time you run it, all Orgs are enumerated, then all groups, then all the servers for each group are identified. This information is then stored on the local disk. Next time you run the program, it uses the stored information, so it's instantaneous. Every week or so, you can easily update the list. GRP2SVR will also show the number of groups on a server (left double-click) and the number of services on a server (right-click). Freeware. Version 1.1 uploaded on 4/15/96.
