    My ISP requires server side includes to end in .ssi, but every time I upload a file with this suffix fetch calls stuffit. How do I stop this?

    We do not believe Fetch should be stuffing .ssl files automatically.

    Could you please tell us program are you using to create the .ssl files? And could you please send us a sample .ssl file so we can figure out why Fetch is stuffing it? In the Finder, select the file, choose File > Create Archive, and send the resulting .zip file along with a short description of your problem to:

    bugs at fetchsoftworks dot com

    In the meantime, you can force Fetch to upload files as text by going to the Format submenu of the Remote menu and choosing "Text" after you connect to the server. Let us know if that solves the problem.

    But please do send us a sample file and the name of the program that created it, so that we can try to make Fetch do the right thing in a future version.
