display group - overrides the display group settings in the client
sender - overrides the sender setting in the client
station - overrides the station setting in the cliet presets
file - overrides the preset file setting in the client

*** Here are some important file name changes in PageGate ***

File Name Changes: (since version 1.4)

The mailbox format file (.mbf) used with the Mdaemon mail server has been changed from notepage.mbf to pagegate.mbf.
It resides in the \mdaemon\app directory
The web interface's cgi program's name has changed from web2mail.exe to webgate.exe.
It may reside in the \inetpub\cgi-bin directory or any other directory you setup.
All of the above should be handled automatically by PageGate upgrade routine. NotePager Net's executable file has changed from NotePagerNet.exe to NPNet.exe. The new sendpage program for the commandline/ascii interface is sendpage.exe.
Its syntax is displayed if it is run without any commandline options.
Anyone that is updating the database directly should be sure to take notice of the name change.
In addition PageGate now uses Microsoft's latest database engine (the files are part of the download and automatically installed). This may be a problem if you application is written to use an older version of MS Access.

Upgrade Information: If you are upgrading from an earlier version of PageGate, please use the following procedure:
1) Make a full backup of your installation!!!
2) Uninstall the old version of PageGate by using the 'Add/Remove Programs' option in the Windows control panel. This will uninstall the program files, but will leave the data files intact."
3) Install PageGate Version 2 using the instructions above. Be sure to specify the same installation directory for version 2 that was used by the earlier version of PageGate.
4) Run pgadmin.exe (PageGate's Admin program) from PageGate's program directory. This will upgrade PageGate's database file without starting the other modules.
5) Quit out of PageGate and then start it as usual.
