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.

Sending a Memo

In order to send or receive memos, you need to have identified to a registered nickname.

  • Usage: /msg MemoServ SEND nick/#channel [text]
    • Example: /msg MemoServ SEND Kyle Oh my god, they killed Kenny!

Cancel a memo

Cancelling the last unread memo you sent to a nick or channel:

  • Usage: /msg MemoServ CANCEL nick/#channel [text]
    • Example: /msg MemoServ CANCEL Kyle

List Memos

Listing all or only particular memos you have or a given channel has received:

  • Usage: /msg MemoServ #channel LIST|NEW
    • Example: /msg MemoServ LIST NEW

Note: new lists only new (unread) memos, list 2-4 lists memos numbered 2 through 4. If neither new nor a list is given, all memos will be listed, unread memos are marked with a * to the left of the memo number.

Read memos

Reading particular memos you or a channel received:

  • Usage: /msg MemoServ READ #channel NUM|LIST|LAST|NEW
    • Example: /msg MemoServ READ new

Deleting Memos

Deleting particular memos you or a channel received:

  • Usage: /msg MemoServ DEL #channel NUM|LIST|LAST|NEW
    • Example: /msg MemoServ DEL 2

Memo Option Settings

Setting various memo options:

  • NOTIFIY - Changing when you will be notified about new memos:
    • Usage: /msg MemoServ SET NOTIFY ON|LOGON|NEW|OFF
      • ON: notification on logon, unsetting /away, and when they are sent to you.
      • LOGON: notification on logon, and unsetting /away
      • NEW: notification when they are sent to you
      • OFF: no notification at all
    • Example: /msg MemoServ SET NOTIFY NEW
  • LIMIT - Setting the maximum number of memos you or the given channel can receive:
    • Usage: /msg MemoServ SET LIMIT #channel LIMIT
    • Example: /msg MemoServ SET LIMIT 5

Note: You cannot set the limit any higher than 20. Setting it to 0 won't allow anyone to send you a memo.


Viewing your (or if given a channel's) amount of (unread) memos, the memo limit, and your notification setting:

  • Usage: /msg MemoServ INFO #channel
    • Example: /msg MemoServ INFO

Memo Status

Checking whether the last memo you sent to a user has been read or not:

  • Usage: /msg MemoServ CHECK nick
    • Example: /msg MemoServ CHECK John
