In your mail apps you address messages using p2p, telnet or ax.25
exactly the same way <some_call_sign>@winlink.org. Do not change this
As I said before once messages are composed and existing in your outbox
directory /usr/local/var/wl2k/outbox, you can send them using p2p
(nearby winlink machine), telnet (CMS) or ax.25 (winlink RMS
Gateway). The messages and how they are addressed are exactly the same
for all the different transports.
To send a message via p2p use wl2kax25 & drop the SSID from the call sign,
that's all there is to it. ie. wl2kax25 -c n7nix

OK so the reinstall fixed the PLUWEB.. Thanks..You are using an unqualified email address. If you did this using mutt
email client it would automatically append the winlink domain.
**All the email apps require an @domain, specifically <some_callsign>@winlink.org
Somehow while typing this reply, my friend sent me an email directly (no gateway) addressed to N7KJK@winlink.org..Did you receive it via internet or radio?
I think something similar to the issue with my email address insteadCorrect, the address you use must be a valid email address,

Looking at that file I can tell you whether it has a chance of being
Exercise for you:
Compose a single message to email@example.com and copy it to a temporary directory.
Send it using: wl2ktelnet
Copy message from temporary directory to /usr/local/var/wl2k/outbox
Send it using: wl2kax25 -c k7rmz-10
Copy message from tmp directory to /usr/local/var/wl2k/outbox
Make sure k7kmz is set to receive via p2p.
Send it using wl2kax25 -c k7kmz
Cut & paste the console output from those 3 transactions in a regular
email to me.
