  • HELP

    MemoServ is a utility allowing IRC users to send short messages to other IRC users, whether they are online at the time or not, or to channels(*). Both the sender's nickname and the target nickname or channel must be registered in order to send a memo. MemoServ's commands include:

    SEND Send a memo to a nick or channel
    CANCEL Cancel last memo you sent
    LIST List your memos
    READ Read a memo or memos
    DEL Delete a memo or memos
    SET Set options related to memos

    Type /msg MemoServ HELP command for help on any of the above commands.

    (*) By default, any user with at least level 10 access on a channel can read that channel's memos. This can be changed with the MemoServ LEVELS command.

  • SEND

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ SEND {nick | channelmemo-text

    Sends the named nick or channel a memo containing memo-text. When sending to a nickname, the recipient will receive a notice that he/she has a new memo. The target nickname/channel must be registered.

  • CANCEL

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ CANCEL {nick | channel}

    Cancels the last memo you sent to the given nick or channel, provided it has not been read at the time you use the command.

  • LIST

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ LIST [channel] [list | NEW]

    Lists any memos you currently have. With NEW, lists only new (unread) memos. Unread memos are marked with a "*" to the left of the memo number. You can also specify a list of numbers, as in the example below:

    LIST 2-5,7-9
      Lists memos numbered 2 through 5 and 7 through 9.
  • READ

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ READ [channel] {num | list | LAST | NEW}

    Sends you the text of the memos specified. If LAST is given, sends you the memo you most recently received. If NEW is given, sends you all of your new memos. Otherwise, sends you memo number num. You can also give a list of numbers, as in this example:

    READ 2-5,7-9
      Displays memos numbered 2 through 5 and 7 through 9.
  • DEL

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ DEL [channel] {num | list | LAST | ALL}

    Deletes the specified memo or memos. You can supply multiple memo numbers or ranges of numbers instead of a single number, as in the second example below.

    If LAST is given, the last memo will be deleted.
    If ALL is given, deletes all of your memos.

    Examples:

    DEL 1
      Deletes your first memo.
    DEL 2-5,7-9
      Deletes memos numbered 2 through 5 and 7 through 9.
  • SET

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ SET option parameters

    Sets various memo options. option can be one of:

    NOTIFY Changes when you will be notified about new memos (only for nicknames)
    LIMIT Sets the maximum number of memos you can receive

    Type /msg MemoServ HELP SET option for more information on a specific option.

  • SET NOTIFY

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ SET NOTIFY {ON | LOGON | NEW | OFF}

    Changes when you will be notified about new memos:

    ON You will be notified of memos when you log on, when you unset /AWAY, and when they are sent to you.
    LOGON You will only be notified of memos when you log on or when you unset /AWAY.
    NEW You will only be notified of memos when they are sent to you.
    OFF You will not receive any notification of memos.

    ON is essentially LOGON and NEW combined.

  • SET LIMIT

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ SET LIMIT [channellimit

    Sets the maximum number of memos you (or the given channel) are allowed to have. If you set this to 0, no one will be able to send any memos to you. However, you cannot set this any higher than <num>.

  • INFO

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ INFO [channel]

    Displays information on the number of memos you have, how many of them are unread, and how many total memos you can receive. With a parameter, displays the same information for the given channel.

  • SERVADMIN SET LIMIT

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ SET LIMIT [user | channel] {limit | NONE} [HARD]

    Sets the maximum number of memos a user or channel is allowed to have. Setting the limit to 0 prevents the user from receiving any memos; setting it to NONE allows the user to receive and keep as many memos as they want. If you do not give a nickname or channel, your own limit is set.

    Adding HARD prevents the user from changing the limit. Not adding HARD has the opposite effect, allowing the user to change the limit (even if a previous limit was set with HARD).

    This use of the SET LIMIT command is limited to Services admins. Other users may only enter a limit for themselves or a channel on which they have such privileges, may not remove their limit, may not set a limit above <num>, and may not set a hard limit.

  • SERVADMIN INFO

    Syntax: /msg MemoServ INFO [nick | channel]

    Without a parameter, displays information on the number of memos you have, how many of them are unread, and how many total memos you can receive.

    With a channel parameter, displays the same information for the given channel.

    With a nickname parameter, displays the same information for the given nickname. This use limited to Services admins.
