The MSGINF file is a drop file that can be created by BBS software to pass information to an external message editor.


The original MSGINF file format comes from QuickBBS and Remote Access BBS Software.

The file is just a simple text file with CRLF-terminated lines:

Line Description
1 From name or “Anonymous”
2 To name or “All”
3 Subject
4 Message number (always “1”)
5 Message area name
6 Private: “YES” or “NO”
7 Optional tag-line file path/name (Synchronet extension)
