Outpost BBS


Maximus BBS/Squish

This is an unofficial support site for the Maximus BBS software and its accompanying Squish mail tosser software. I have been running Maximus and Squish together since the late 1990s off and on. I currently run Maximus/2 v3.01 under ArcaOS (a third-party supported version of OS/2 Warp with many improvements). Here, you can download the last officially supported version of Maximus BBS and Squish. The Y2K fixpacks are here as well and you can download the Maximus and Squish source code.

I am the moderator of the MUFFIN (Maximus) and TUB (Squish) support echoes in Fidonet. I have also written and co-authored a few utilities for Maximus.
