Yes, I had spotted the IP, thanks.

It then failed to start with an error from the Socket_Accept ...
17:01:03.56 ** WimpError ** from POP3 pseudo-server
  Error  : &00020E23
  Message: Resource temporarily unavailable
However, I seemed to remember something about adding &20E00 to the error
codes for the Iyonix, which then allowed it to start :-))

Is it a Messages File? I thought it wanted a Messages Directory with
several messages in it? Mind you, AS seems to connect, but the box fails
with '040 -ERR Message does not exist' so I have still got something
wrong :-(

When you say rmail format, presumably this is without the #! rmail
nnnnnnn header line?

Don't bother too much - it would just be useful to see if my
implementation is anything like others, in case I have missed something.

Sounds interesting!

Thanks for your help.
