The Mailslot protocol is part of the SMB protocol family.
A mailslot is a (temporary) RAM-based file to which numerous records of data can be written and read by several computers on the same network (i.e., domain). See http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa365130.aspx for details on the Microsoft Developer Network.
XXX - add a brief description of Mailslot history
XXX - Add example traffic here (as plain text or Wireshark screenshot).
The Mailslot dissector is (fully functional, partially functional, not existing, … whatever the current state is). Also add info of additional Wireshark features where appropriate, like special statistics of this protocol.
There are no Mailslot specific preference settings.
XXX - Add a simple example capture file to the SampleCaptures page and link from here. Keep it short, it's also a good idea to gzip it to make it even smaller, as Wireshark can open gzipped files automatically.
A complete list of Mailslot display filter fields can be found in the display filter reference
