Thanks for the update, this is great news! I'm glad well be getting the boards even if we need to wait on the case, I can't wait to start experimenting.

Yes they will.  

The delay is, in part, working with the manufacturer to get the case "just right".  In the meantime the C4Labs case works nicely with the early adopter HATS, if you are looking to provide earlier packaging.

The sample was modified with hand tools, to create an install slot for the SMA connector - the final cases will have that slot as part of the machining at the factory.

DRAWS Shipping Update:

by k7udr


It was great to meet many of you at Hamvention and SeaPAC.

The latest DRAWS HATs will arrive shortly and we will fill all backorders next week.

A date for the cases has not been confirmed. If you ordered a kit, we will ship your board with cables and GPS Antenna next week and ship the cases when they come in; no additional shipping charge.

We will notify everyone via the blog and forum when we have firm dates for cases.

Turnkey units will have to wait for the cases of course.

If you would like to modify your order, use the form at the bottom of the Support page.

Make sure to follow the blog  to receive company updates.

Also, be sure you are subscribed to the forum for ongoing support.

If you need a ThumbDV, they are in stock now.

Hi Basil,

I now have rainloop working correctly per the great instructions in ~/n7nix/email/rainloop/README.md.

Hi Basil,

Thanks for the files.

I diff'd them with the installed files and only the 10-auth.conf had a needed change for auth_mechanisms:

pi@Compass:~/basil $ diff 10-auth.conf /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-auth.conf
10c10
< #disable_plaintext_auth = no
---
> #disable_plaintext_auth = yes
100c100
< auth_mechanisms = plain login
---
> auth_mechanisms = plain

The dovecot.conf file was only different in the postmaster_address:

pi@Compass:~/basil $ diff dovecot.conf /etc/dovecot/dovecot.conf
105c105
< postmaster_address = pi@beta13test
---
> postmaster_address = pi@Compass

I didn't update my current one since I'm assuming we want to stick with pi@... updating 10-auth.conf, I restarted the dovecot service, configured Claws and it came up fine.

Now just need to figure out rainloop config.

Like claws, I want to use this for my KF7DRV@... email. However, local delivery is to pi@Compass. I assume I still use localhost for both IMAP and SMTP. So when I add a new rainloop domain, do I create a winlink.org domain or a Compass domain?

You have to restart dovecot after changing the config files.

I saw a hand modified early adopter case at SeaPac this past weekend.  It looked good but I was told delivery would be "summer".
Complete units would also be "summer" as they have the other parts of the units in hand.  I guess it is just the hazards of sourcing

Re: paclink-unix incoming messages

Hi Basil,

I don't know how the dovecot 10-auth.conf file got scrozzled but I found CSV data from the WWARA repeater list appended. I ended up copying over it with the copy in /usr/share/dovecot/conf.d and after a reboot, dovecot comes up fine. However, I don't know what mods your install may have made to it to work in this environment.

Can you send me a copy of /etc/dovecot/conf.d/10-auth.conf or is it identical to the one in /usr/sharedovecot/conf.d?

Thanks,

Keith

The plu config script sets wl2k.conf like this:

   ## Set email=user_name@localhost

   sed -i -e "s/^#email=.*/email=$USER@localhost/" $PLU_CFG_FILE

And your wl2k.conf file had your gmail account in it. How did that happen?

As I mentioned in my previous email, I was trying to get paclink to successfully authenticate. My callsign and password matched the working config of Winlink Express but the email address is my gmail address in WE but the email address in the wl2k.conf was pi@localhost. Was grasping at straws so changed it to match. Then after updating paclink to latest and resolving the issue, forgot to go back in and change it back. Doh.

Good.
Can you determine if rainloop is installed?
In a browser type this url: localhost/?admin

Yep, rainloop answers up with a login/password page.

The plu config script sets wl2k.conf like this:

   ## Set email=user_name@localhost

   sed -i -e "s/^#email=.*/email=$USER@localhost/" $PLU_CFG_FILE

And your wl2k.conf file had your gmail account in it. How did that happen?

As I mentioned in my previous email, I was trying to get paclink to successfully authenticate. My callsign and password matched the working config of Winlink Express but the email address is my gmail address in WE but the email address in the wl2k.conf was pi@localhost. Was grasping at straws so changed it to match. Then after updating paclink to latest and resolving the issue, forgot to go back in and change it back. Doh. When retrieving a message from the CMS, I noticed the detail output from wl2ktelnet showing it invoking sendmail to my gmail address.

Can you determine if claws-mail has been installed?
Dovecot gets installed from claws-mail install script.
Is there a desktop icon for claws-mail?

Yes, I have claws-mail on the desktop. However, Ill need to configure it based on:

I ran "app_config.sh plu" not "app_config.sh pluimap". So are the above
services configured? I haven't messed with any config
files you haven't specifically told me to modify.
The plu config script sets wl2k.conf like this:

## Set email=user_name@localhost

sed -i -e "s/^#email=.*/email=$USER@localhost/" $PLU_CFG_FILE

And your wl2k.conf file had your gmail account in it. How did that happen?

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

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)

Thanks..that would be great. Rainloop looks pretty nice.

access, VNC isn't necessarily needed for remote operation.

For my use case, I'll generally be accessing winlink email from my laptop
(XPS13 running Ubuntu 16.04). However, I'll also want to be able to access
from RPi (although via VNC). I run all my RPi projects headless (except
during initial bringup).

It would seem that getting dovecot configured would be the best route.

I could access email from either the laptop or RPi using rainloop.

I would like to help get claws-mail (or rainloop) working for you.
Although mutt is the easiest to configure & get operational.
