Nickserv is a service used for registration and protection of nicknames. If you would
like to protect your nickname from being used by other users, then you must register
it on Nickserv. Also, you have to register your nickname with Nickserv before you
will be able to send or receive memos to others
Make sure you are logged in using the nick you wish to register by using:
To register your nickname, you must type the following command once you are logged
onto the network:
Then Nickserv will send you a conformation code to the email you supplied. Enter
that conformation code you received, and your nick is registered by using:
/msg Nickserv CONFIRM <passcode>
Substitute <passcode> with the code emailed to you.
The next time you log onto the network, you will be prompted by Nickserv for your
nickname password. To identify to your nickname, type the following command:
/msg Nickserv IDENTIFY <password>
Please replace the "password" portion of the command with the password which you
used to register your nickname.
How to send a memo
MemoServ allows users to send short messages to other users who may not be logged
on the network. This is somewhat like an IRC mailbox. The sender of the memo, as
well as the receiver, must have their nicknames registered with NickServ.
If a user has sent you a memo, you will receive a notification from MemoServ as soon
as the memo is sent or as soon as you identify to your nickname with NickServ. The
message will tell you what to type to read the memo.
If you have several memos, you may wish to view a list. To retrieve a list of all
of your memos (and whether they have been read, deleted, etc) type:
/msg Memoserv LIST
If you would like to send a memo to another user, type the following command:
/msg Memoserv SEND <nickname> <message>
Replace the "nickname" and "message" portions of the command with the appropriate
values. For example:
/msg MemoServ SEND Jack When are we meeting for coffee?
