Re: paclink-unix incoming messages

I ran " plu" not " pluimap". So are the above services configured? I haven't messed with any config
files you haven't specifically told me to modify. 

We verified with netstat -tulpn that nothing is listening on ports 143 or 993. 

I do see that pluweb is running. It seems to work fine to check outbox and run wl2k*.

I agree. Plus you can do everything in a browser including paclink-unix
access, VNC isn't necessarily needed for remote operation.

If you installed paclink-unix then dovecot is already configured
... unless you decide to edit config files yourself.
The paclink-unix install, installs & configures: postfix, dovecot, mutt,
rainloop, claws-mail, nodejs & pluweb app.

Yes. You have a number of options:
local=running on RPi
- local or remote console using mutt
- local or remote web browser using rainloop & plu web app.
- local or remote using VNC & claws-mail
- remote using your mobile device mail app & RPi in host AP mode and
accessing paclink-unix with the web app. (I use K9 mail on my Android)
