For a future consideration, [1] could it be possible to have oxp actually place the pkt content into the message bases *before* anything else gets done?

Currently, the decoded .PKT files do not get tossed until
*after* all other processes (like a nodelist update) occurs.

If a nodelist error occurs, the unpacked/decoded .PKTs sit in the /SPOOL/<host> directory. If they don't get tossed (or actually placed in the message base), the next poll wipes out the whole SPOOL directory with the next PKT arrivals.

It would make much more sense to toss the messages as soon as they have been received. Then I could at least have something to read.

In my case, the PKTs already arrive unpacked from the Boss, so there is no point to wait until a nodelist is processed.

I can preview the .PKTs with notepad and see which ones I am not too interested in and delete those. Then I can use OpenXP's "Import/Read Other format.." for the PKTs that I want. But it sure is a bother to only be able to do that one PKT at a time. :(

Therefore, [2] could a bulk Import/Read option be provided?

Excellent idea and I would also like that feature.

I'll have a look at it in the near future.
