 +==== Robot Sections ====
 +
 +Each NetMail Robot Section has a prefix of "''​robot:''"​ with the name of the robot (e.g. ''​filefix''​) following the prefix. Received NetMail addressed to the name of a robot will be stored in your ''​[[dir:​data]]/​mail''​ base and expected to be acted-up by a robot that is trigged when its associated semaphore file is touched. [[module:​TickFix]] is an example of a NetMail robot.
