 Also note: authentication is performed by the //answering// BinkP node (server/service), so while one security level may work okay for outgoing connections to a linked-node, its possible that there could be problems (incompatibilities) with incoming connections from that same linked-node. It's a good idea to test both incoming and outgoing connections with a linked-node before increasing the BinkP session security level. Also note: authentication is performed by the //answering// BinkP node (server/service), so while one security level may work okay for outgoing connections to a linked-node, its possible that there could be problems (incompatibilities) with incoming connections from that same linked-node.

 +==== 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.
 +
 +^ Key             ^ Description ^
 +| ''SemFile''     | The path and filename of a semaphore file to be //touched// by SBBSecho when a NetMail is received for the robot |
 +| ''attr''        | NetMail attribute flags to set (usually specific in hexadecimal notation with a ''0x'' prefix), ''0x20'' (In-Transit) is recommended |
