#claws-mail ICS Forms #claws-mail

When I start flmsg in a terminal, this is the output after attempting to open the template (which still look good in the browser at this point).  I think that this may be the source of the problem.

Any ideas?

This is where I am lost.
Do attach the k2s file to the email?
Yes

And what is a k2s file?
Please read the manual: http://www.w1hkj.com/flmsg-help/
All custom messages should have file name extension ".k2s"

First off, I backed up and followed the steps you listed in
successfully sending a form. I have now gotten as far as creating a
'K2s' file (never seen that before) which theoretically contains my
complete form in some form. I have no idea where to go from here.
What directory did you save the message to?
~/.nbems/ICS

Compose a message using your mail client & attach your new message to
the Winlink email.
Send it to your self.

I am using the DRAWS imagine with your configuration.

Linux draws 4.19.75-v7l+
FLMSG 4.0.14
Chromium
(also pat and piardopc for HF access)

...running on a Raspberry Pi 4 with the DRAWS hat attached.

And then I attache the k2s file to a message and receive it in Winlink Express, this is the content that is received:

How did you receive it?
In Winlink Express click on attachment paper clip which will prompt you for which browser to
render the file with.

this is the content that is received:

<flmsg>4.0.14

I do not send a k2s file. The file I send has an html extension.

Good to know - thanks, Mitch!

That explains why the body of the message that I was using as a template is formatted the way it is (screen shot from my write-up):

Thanks for the info!

Scott,

Typically, ICS-213s are normalized down to numbered lines per the PDF
forms provided by the form owners.  What gets transmitted OTA is simply
the numeral followed by the data.

See the attached snip.

Yes.  This is the simplest way to do these because if you need to relay it by voice, it's "paint by the numbers".  Super simple.  Date and Time stamps make the message unique along with the addressees.
