Re: Point to Point (P2P) email transfer #draws

Kevin K. - N7KJK

I think there in lies some of the confusion.
The receiving end isn't configured the same way. 
They're not using a DRAWS .  (not sure exactly what digital components (physical and/or software) they're using.
He indicated that Packet P2P had to have the messages addressed to the call sign -  sans
With this information we'll run some more tests.
since I'm receiving email with the full winlink email address from him when he calls N7KJK (no ssid) something's working.

We are wondering why my messages show up on his end sometimes with SMTP reference (see image attached).

This is getting very very close.  It's going to be very helpful for volunteer event coming up next weekend.

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

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>

Did you receive it via internet or radio?

Correct, the address you use must be a valid email address,

Send me the file you are about to send from /usr/local/var/wl2k/outbox.
Looking at that file I can tell you whether it has a chance of being
sent properly.

Exercise for you:
Compose a single message to k7rmz@... 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.
