Sysop Application for ILink Echomail Network


    When a sysop applies to join ILink, a review is made of the applicant's
     BBS policies, message traffic, stability, capabilities, and overall
     quality. This review is carried out quietly by the ILink BBS
     Administrator. On approval, the BBS is admitted as a trial member for a
     60-day period, and is assigned to a host system for mail transfers by
     the ILink BBS Administrator.

     More details concerning the policies governing ILink are contained in a
     file called ILDoc. Upon acceptance, additional documentation to assist
     you in setting up ILink will be provided.


     It takes about one week to process an application from the time you
     submit it to the time you are informed of the decision.
